Famous quotes containing the words exhibition and/or pictures:
“The hardiest skeptic who has seen a horse broken, a pointer trained, or has visited a menagerie or the exhibition of the Industrious Fleas, will not deny the validity of education. A boy, says Plato, is the most vicious of all beasts; and in the same spirit the old English poet Gascoigne says, A boy is better unborn than untaught.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“With pictures full, of wax and of wool,
Their livers I stick with needles quick;
There lacks but the blood to make up the flood.”
—Ben Jonson (15721637)
