Famous quotes containing the words portrayal of, people, black and/or portrayal:

    From the oyster to the eagle, from the swine to the tiger, all animals are to be found in men and each of them exists in some man, sometimes several at the time. Animals are nothing but the portrayal of our virtues and vices made manifest to our eyes, the visible reflections of our souls. God displays them to us to give us food for thought.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    Sensible people get the greater part of their own dying done during their own lifetime. A man at five and thirty should no more regret not having had a happier childhood than he should regret not having been born a prince of the blood.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    And my eyes are blue;
    So ferry me across the water,
    Do, boatman, do!”

    “Step into my ferry-boat,
    Be they black or blue,
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
