The imagination made us human, but being human, becoming more human, is a greater burden than we imagined. We have no choice but to imagine ourselves more human than we are. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
Life, raw life, the kind we lead every day, whether it leads us into the past or the future, has the curious property of not seeming real enough. We have a need, however illusive, for a life that is more real than life. It lies in the imagination. Fiction would seem to be the way it is processed into reality. If this were not so we should have little excuse for art. Life, raw life, would be more than satisfactory in itself. But it seems to be the nature of man to transform - himself, if possible, and then the world around him - and the technique of this transformation is what we call art. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
After many months of writing, it occured to me that it might be possible to photograph, in the flesh, what I was attempting to capture in words. I bought a Rolleiflex camera and began to take pictures of objects or structures that were used and abused by human hands ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
However much [photographs] may lie, they do so with the raw materials of truth. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
We're in the world of communications more and more, tough we're in communication less and less. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
The photograph, after all, is just a photograph. Words will determine its meaning and status. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
As the style of Faulkner grew out of his rage
out of the impotence of his rage
the style of Hemingway grew out of the depth andnuance of his disenchantment. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
The camera eye is the one in the middle of our forehead, combining how we see with what there is to be seen. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
Images proliferate. Am I wrong in being reminded of printing money in a period of wild inflation? Do we know what we are doing? Are we able to evaluate what we have done? ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
I prefer a taken to a made photograph. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
Everyone in California is from somewhere else. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
[We] make images to see clearly: then we see clearly what we have made. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
In the blur of the photograph, time leaves its gleaming, snail-like track. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
Cats don't belong to people. They belong to places. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
When writing is good, everything is symbolic, but symbolic writing is seldom good. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
There's little to see, but things leave an impression. It's a matter of time and repetition. As something old wears thin or out, something new wears in. The handle on the pump, the crank on the churn, the dipper floating in the bucket, the latch on the screen, the door on the privy, the fender on the stove, the knees of the pants and the seat of the chair, the handle of the brush and the lid to the pot exist in time but outside taste; they wear in more than they wear out. It can't be helped. It's neither good nor bad. It's the nature of life. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
The man who walks alone is soon trailed by the F.B.I. ~ Wright Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Wright Morris
One might even state it as an axiom: when the church leaves out bits of its core teaching, heretics will pick them up, turn them into something new, and use them to spread doubt and unbelief. ~ N. T. Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by N. T. Wright
She shoved her hands in the deep silk-lined pockets ... where she felt the cold steel of a revolver. ~ Sherry Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Sherry Morris
I like the idea of young readers using my stories as a sort of moral gym, where they can flex and develop their newly developed moral muscle. ~ Morris Gleitzman
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Morris Gleitzman
Memories, made to last forever<3 ~ Paula Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Paula Morris
Our meeting was inevitable. Our love was terminal. But God and Goddess damn it, our daughter was no mistake at all. ~ Edward Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Edward Morris
It's when things are going just right that you'd better be suspicious. There you are, fat as can be. The whole world is yours and you're the answer to the Wright brothers' prayers. You say to yourself, nothing can go wrong ... all my trespasses are forgiven. Best you not believe it. ~ Ernest K. Gann
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Ernest K. Gann
The good Lord had been having a very creative day when he made Connor McKenzie ~ Suzanne Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Suzanne Wright
How are we going to make painters by lecturing to them? We are going to make questioners, doubters, and talkers. We are going to make painters by painting ourselves, and by showing the paintings of others. By working frankly from our convictions, we are going to make them work frankly from theirs. ~ William Morris Hunt
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by William Morris Hunt
The road to Emmaus is this world. ~ Franz Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Franz Wright
Hands down, Rick Ross is a genius. Hands down, Diddy is a genius. Hands down, Kanye is a genius. All of them. ~ Betty Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Betty Wright
The greatest foe to art is luxury, art cannot live in its atmosphere. ~ William Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by William Morris
Early in my career ... I had to choose between an honest arrogance and a hypercritical humility ... I deliberately choose an honest arrogance, and I've never been sorry. ~ Frank Lloyd Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Frank Lloyd Wright
If at first you dont succeed.........quit! ~ Jackson T. Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Jackson T. Wright
I went to a garage sale. 'How much for the garage' 'It's not for sale.' ~ Steven Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Steven Wright
[L]asting love is something a person has to decide to experience. Lifelong monogamous devotion is just not natural - not for women even, and emphatically not for men. It requires what, for lack of a better term, we can call an act of will ... This isn't to say that a young man can't hope to be seized by love ... But whether the sheer fury of a man's feelings accurately gauges their likely endurance is another question. The ardor will surely fade, sooner or later, and the marriage will then live or die on respect, practical compatibility, simple affection, and (these days, especially) determination. With the help of these things, something worthy of the label 'love' can last until death. But it will be a different kind of love from the kind that began the marriage. Will it be a richer love, a deeper love, a more spiritual love? Opinions vary. But it's certainly a more impressive love. ~ Robert Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Robert Wright
You're talent, and we're the talent scouts. ~ Janet Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Janet Morris
Here is our first rule: Any life you create is yours, and must be cared for. No matter how humble or small, it is still yours, and you must answer for it. ~ John C. Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by John C. Wright
I had amnesia once or twice. ~ Steven Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Steven Wright
The mythology of a people is far more than a collection of pretty or terrifying fables to be retold in carefully bowdlerized form to our schoolchildren. It is the comment of the men of one particular age or civilization on the mysteries of human existence and the human mind, their model for social behaviour, and their attempt to define in stories of gods and demons their perception of the inner realities. We can learn much from the mythologies of earlier peoples if we have the humility to respect ways of thought widely differing from our own. In certain respects we may be far cleverer than they, but not necessarily wiser. We cannot return to the mythological thinking of an earlier age; it is beyond our reach, like the vanished world of childhood. Even if we feel a nostalgic longing for the past, like that of Jon Keats for Ancient Greece of William Morris for medieval England, there is now no way of entry. The Nazis tries to revive the myths of ancient Germany in their ideology, but such an attempt could only lead to sterility and moral suicide. We cannot deny the demands of our own age, but this need not prevent us turning to the faith of another age with sympathetic understanding, and recapturing imaginatively some of its vanished power. It will even help us view more clearly the assumptions and beliefs of our own time ~ H. R. Ellis Davidson
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by H. R. Ellis Davidson
And despite it all, he has never been able to abandon hope that his betters will someday notice him. Will someday accept him as one of their own.
It is the failing of his lifetime. ~ Kim Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Kim Wright
When I was a kid I had a friend who worked in a radio station. Whenever we walked under a bridge, you couldn't hear what he said. ~ Steven Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Steven Wright
It was a highly geared world whose nature was conflict and action, a world whose limited area and vision imperiously urged men to satisfy their organisms, a world that existed on a plane of animal sensation alone. It ~ Richard Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Richard Wright
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny? ~ Steven Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Steven Wright
The necklace is the anchor; it's the classification of jewelry that says what the whole idea is about. ~ Robert Lee Morris
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Robert Lee Morris
We go to school and teachers teach us to read and write but nobody teaches us about the purposeful commitment and intentionality it takes to make our marriages healthy and sustain love over a lifetime. Most people seem to think love should "naturally" sustain itself as it did during the beginning of our relationship with each other -but that just isn't realistic. ~ Cindy Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by Cindy Wright
Forget happiness. You were called to a throne. How will you prepare for it? That is the question of virtue, Christian style. ~ N. T. Wright
Thereza Wright Morris quotes by N. T. Wright
