William Morris

English poet, artist and social activist
...If our houses, or clothes, our household furniture and utensils are not works of art, they are either wretched makeshifts, or, what is worse, degrading shams of better things.More William Morris quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
O thrush, your song is passing sweet,
But never a song that you have sung
Is half so sweet as thrushes sang
When my dear love and I were young.More William Morris quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I love art, and I love history, but it is living art and living history that I love. It is in the interest of living art and living history that I oppose so-called restoration. What history can there be in a building bedaubed with ornament, which cannot at the best be anything but a hopeless and lifeless imitation of the hope and vigor of the earlier world?More William Morris quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A world made to be lost, -A bitter life 'twixt pain and nothing tost.More William Morris quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.More William Morris quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
