Famous quotes containing the word acts:

    As the will to truth thus gains self-consciousness—there can be no doubt of that—morality will gradually perish now: this is the great spectacle in a hundred acts reserved for the next two centuries in Europe—the most terrible, most questionable, and perhaps also the most hopeful of all spectacles.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Men are mad most of their lives; few live sane, fewer die so.... The acts of people are baffling unless we realize that their wits are disordered. Man is driven to justice by his lunacy.
    Edward Dahlberg (1900–1977)

    Photography suits the temper of this age—of active bodies and minds. It is a perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who sees quickly and acts decisively, accurately.
    Edward Weston (1886–1958)
