Famous quotes containing the word portraits:

    There are portraits and still-lifes
    And the first, because ‘human’
    Does not excel the second,
    Charles Tomlinson (b. 1927)

    ... while I may paint in the tints or outlines of rocks and beaches, dawns and harbor, fleet and wharf, I never draw portraits of my neighbors or of my friends.
    Elizabeth Stuart Phelps (1844–1911)

    You that would judge me do not judge alone
    This book or that, come to this hallowed place
    Where my friends’ portraits hang and look thereon;
    Ireland’s history in their lineaments trace;
    Think where man’s glory most begins and ends
    And say my glory was I had such friends.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
