Famous quotes containing the word extract:
“The past is interesting not only for the beauty which the artists for whom it was the present were able to extract from it, but also as past, for its historical value. The same goes for the present. The pleasure which we derive from the representation of the present is due not only to the beauty in which it may be clothed, but also from its essential quality of being present.”
—Charles Baudelaire (18211867)
“The ugly is very appealing to man.... Its instinct. One shrinks from the ugly, yet wants to look at it. Theres a devilish fascination in it. We extract pleasure from horror.”
—Sonya Levien (18951960)
“Ive never been convinced that experience is linear, circular, or even random. It just is. I try to put it in some kind of order to extract meaning from it, to bring meaning to it.”
