The Best Art Exhibitions in London This Spring

Famous quotes containing the words spring, london and/or art:

    Honour, thou first didst close
    The spring of all delight,
    Denying water to the amorous thirst;
    Torquato Tasso (1544–1595)

    In all the important preparations of the mind she was complete; being prepared for matrimony by an hatred of home, restraint, and tranquillity; by the misery of disappointed affection, and contempt of the man she was to marry. The rest might wait. The preparations of new carriages and furniture might wait for London and the spring, when her own taste could have fairer play.
    Jane Austen (1775–1817)

    We do not fear censorship for we have no wish to offend with improprieties or obscenities, but we do demand, as a right, the liberty to show the dark side of wrong, that we may illuminate the bright side of virtue—the same liberty that is conceded to the art of the written word, that art to which we owe the Bible and the works of Shakespeare.
    —D.W. (David Wark)
