Famous quotes containing the word statues:

    Art is the need to create; but in its essence, immense and universal, it is impatient of working with lame or tied hands, and of making cripples and monsters, such as all pictures and statues are. Nothing less than the creation of man and nature is its end.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    But have you wine and music still,
    And statues and a bright-eyed love,
    And foolish thoughts of good and ill,
    And prayers to them who sit above?
    James Elroy Flecker (1884–1919)

    And are not men than they more blind,
    Who having eyes yet never find
    The bliss in which they move:
    Like statues dead
    They up and down are carried,
    Yet neither see nor love.
    Thomas Traherne (1636–1674)
