Famous quotes containing the word pictures:
“We dont know any more about pictures than a kangaroo does about metaphysics.... To us, the great uncultivated, it is the last thing in the world to call a picture. Brown said it looked like an old fire- board.”
—Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (18351910)
