John Ruskin

English writer, artist, art theorist, literary critic and poet
In the range of inorganic nature. I doubt if any object can be found more perfectly beautiful than a fresh, deep snowdrift, seen under warm light.More John Ruskin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
However good you may be you have faults; however dull you may be you can find out what some of them are, and however slight they may be you had better make some - not too painful, but patient efforts to get rid of them.More John Ruskin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every increased possession loads us with a new weariness.More John Ruskin quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You cannot hammer a girl into anything. She grows as a flower does, she will wither without sun; she will decay in her sheath as a narcissus will if you do not give her air enough; she might fall and defile her head in dust if you leave her without help at some moments in her life; but you cannot fetter her; she must take her own fair form and way if she take any.More John Ruskin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You talk of the scythe of Time, and the tooth of Time: I tell you, Time is scytheless and toothless; it is we who gnaw like the worm - we who smite like the scythe. It is ourselves who abolish - ourselves who consume: we are the mildew, and the flame.More John Ruskin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
