Seite 163 - In looking at objects of Nature while I am thinking, as at yonder moon dim-glimmering thro' the dewy windowpane, I seem rather to be seeking, as it were asking, a symbolical language for something within me that already and forever exists, than observing anything new.
Seite 163 - I am thinking, as at yonder moon dim-glimmering thro' the dewy windowpane, I seem rather to be seeking, as it were asking, a symbolical language for something within me that already and forever exists, than observing anything new. Even when that latter is the case, yet still I have always an obscure feeling as if that new phaenomenon were the dim Awaking of a forgotten or hidden Truth of my inner Nature/ It is still interesting as a Word, a Symbol!
Seite 107 - My intention has not been so much to paint pictures that will charm the eye, as to suggest great thoughts that will appeal to the imagination and the heart, and kindle all that is best and noblest in humanity.
Seite 173 - IT is not the lover of pictures, but the devotee of his own spiritual emotions who needs to be told that technique is art ; that it is as inseparable from art as features from facial expression, as body from soul in a world where force and matter seem inextricably entangled. In fact, the man who has no interest in technical questions has no interest in art ; he loves it as those love you who profess only love for your soul.
Seite 104 - Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.) I concentrate toward them that are nigh, I wait on the door-slab, Who has done his day's work?
Seite 21 - Peel would appoint him chairman of a royal commission (at first a select committee) 'to take into consideration the Promotion of the Fine Arts of this Country, in connexion with the Rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament'.
Seite 57 - ... illusions that endure through every changing fashion of the world. A knight in armour pricks on his horse in quick pursuit of the rainbow-tinted bubble of glory ; on his right are two lovers; on his left an aged student still pores over his work by the last rays of the dying sun ; while in the shadow of the group may be seen "the form of a little child chasing a butterfly.
Seite 94 - The ugliness of most things connected with our ordinary habits is most remarkable. A welldressed gentleman ready for dinner or attired for any ceremony is a pitiable example — his vesture nearly formless and quite foldless if he can have his will. His legs, unshapen props — his shirt front, a void — his dress coat, an unspeakable piece of ignobleness. Put it into sculpture, and see the result.
