Image Quotes

Recreate the world in your own image and make it better for your having been here.

Ray Douglas Bradbury

I was in a bookstore, browsing through an old Life magazine, when I saw a picture of what the article called spontaneous human combustion. There were an old guy's legs and shoes, perfectly intact...then, right around his knee area, was just a pile of charred ashes. I was going through some turmoil in my life, both good and bad, and the image struck a chord, so...I wrote a song about it.

Brandon Boyd

The image of the Lord had been replaced by a mirror.

Jorge Luis Borges

I've always said that the actor is only an element of the image, rarely the most important. The actor is important with his dialogue, with the landscape, with a gesture but the actor in himself is nothing.

Michelangelo Antonioni

I find that it is very useful to look over the location and to feel out the atmosphere while waiting for the actors. It may happen that the images before my eyes coincide with those I had in my mind, but this is not frequently the case. It more often happens that there is something insincere or artificial about the image one has thought of. Here again is another way of improvising.

Michelangelo Antonioni

The image of myself which I try to create in my own mind in order that I may love myself is very different from the image which I try to create in the minds of others in order that they may love me.

Wystan Hugh Auden

La principale difficult pour vulgariser la physique quantique, c'est qu'on ne sait pas trs bien comment en fabriquer des images dans notre monde. C'est en ce sens qu'elle est vraiment contre-intuitive.

Alain Aspect

There are only a few images that are not forced to provide meaning, or have to go through the filter of a specific idea.

Jean Baudrillard

The image of ourselves in the minds of others is the picture of a stranger we shall never see.

Elizabeth (Asquith) Bibesco

History breaks down in images not into stories.

Walter Bendix Schnflies Benjamin

The Apology tells us that the political problem for the philosopher is the gods. It makes clear that the images on the wall of the cave about which men will not brook contradiction represent the gods.

Allan David Bloom
