Quotes About Landscape

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust Travel, Eyes, Discovery Maybe black and white is the best medium for landscapes, I don't know. Fay Godwin Best, Black And White, Black The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust Eyes, Discovery, New South Africa never leaves one indifferent. Its history, its population, its landscapes and cultures – all speak to the visitor, to the student, to the friend of Africa. Tariq Ramadan History, Speak, Friend The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust Eyes, Discovery, New The sigh of History rises over ruins, not over landscapes, and in the Antilles there are few ruins to sigh over, apart from the ruins of sugar estates and abandoned forts. Derek Walcott History, Sugar, Abandoned I've been in beautiful landscapes where one is tempted to whip out a camera and take a picture. I've learned to resist that. David Byrne Beautiful, Picture, Camera I like America's diversity and its landscapes. John Lydon Diversity, America, Like I wrote my senior essay on the Santa Fe Writer's Colony and my dissertation on sacred landscapes – the Grand Canyon, the Dakota Badlands. As a setting, I love the West. I just love that western landscape. Elise Broach Love, Landscape, Essay Rock formations and their layers of texture and color have been a strong inspiration, as well as the landscapes of Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada and the Rainbow Mountains in China. Chloe Gosselin Strong, Mountains, Color The land of literature is a fairy land to those who view it at a distance, but, like all other landscapes, the charm fades on a nearer approach, and the thorns and briars become visible. Washington Irving View, Land, Distance Oil drilling and coal mining are killing endangered wildlife, polluting rivers, creating smog over wilderness areas and blocking wildlife corridors in America's most treasured landscapes. Lydia Millet America, Creating, Wildlife We are all regionalists in our origins, however 'universal' our themes and characters, and without our cherished hometowns and childhood landscapes to nourish us, we would be like plants set in shallow soil. Our souls must take root – almost literally. Joyce Carol Oates Childhood, Plants, Soil Wherever you look there are inspirations, books, literature, paintings, landscapes, everything. Just living is an inspiration. Gavin Rossdale Living, Literature, You Objects in a park suggest static repose rather than any ongoing dialectic. Parks are finished landscapes for finished art . Robert Smithson Art, Parks, Park Black-and-white photography, which I was doing in the very early days, was essentially called art photography and usually consisted of landscapes by people like Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. But photographs by people like Adams didn't interest me. William Eggleston Art, Photography, People There are grander and more sublime landscapes – to me. There are more compelling cultures. But what appeals to me about central Montana is that the combination of landscape and lifestyle is the most compelling I've seen on this earth. Small mountain ranges and open prairie, and different weather, different light, all within a 360-degree view. Sam Abell Light, Mountain, Weather I am not a religious person myself, but I did look for nature. I had spent my first sabbatical in New York City. Looked for something different for the second one. Europe and the U.S. didn't really feel enticing because I knew them too well. So Asia it was. The most beautiful landscapes I had seen in Asia were Sri Lanka and Bali. Stefan Sagmeister Nature, Myself, Beautiful I can write most places. I particularly like writing on trains. Being between places is quite liberating, and looking out of the window, watching a procession of landscapes and random-ish objects, is very good for stories. Susanna Clarke Good, Writing, Looking Dreams are where we visit the many lands and landscapes of human possibility and discover the one where we feel at home. The great religious leaders were all dreamers. Jonathan Sacks Home, Dreams, Great Living in a capital in Europe but still surrounded by mountains and ocean, my relationship to music was strongest walking to school and back. I would sing to myself and very quickly started mapping out my melodies to landscapes – at the time I just thought it was very matter of fact, a common thing to do. Bjork Music, Relationship, Time We are too quickly losing important landscapes in this country to development – and I worry that if we do not act to protect them now, future generations will grow up in a profoundly different world. Louis Bacon Future, Losing, World I used to paint landscapes without any people in them but now I paint people who happen to be in a particular place. They might be outside a pub, or on a beach or in a studio. They might have clothes on or they might not. Peter Wright Beach, People, Clothes Yes, and there were changes of light on landscapes and changes of direction of the wind and the force of the wind and weather. That whole scene is too important in Homer to neglect. Robert Fitzgerald Light, Weather, Changes There is nothing that special to see when looking at me. I'm a painter who paints day in day out, from morning till evening – figure pictures and landscapes, more rarely portraits. Gustav Klimt Morning, Day, Looking Perhaps I seek certain utopian things, space for human honour and respect, landscapes not yet offended, planets that do not exist yet, dreamed landscapes. Werner Herzog Respect, Space, Offended

Quotes About Landscape

“Everything had become song. The curve of the road beneath the clouds here, and there the strokes of dark earth, the green and the gray, the torn pink of clay and gravel under fingertips. The consonance was above all that of the muffled shadow and grass to the depths of sky, where a flutter of cheerful feathers quivered.In these dreams there are also black walnut trees, and then a forest that opens in a breeze. Nothing. Nothing more than the obstinate sound of wind.” ― Deborah Heissler, Comme un morceau de nuit, découpé dans son étoffe // tags: landscape, poetry, poetry-quotes 1 likes Like

5. “In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.” – Yogi Berra (1925-) Theory to practice in any profession is an interesting field. In landscape architecture it can sometimes seem like there is a gulf between the two. Particularly for newly qualified landscape architects. Theory should underpin everything one does in practice, even when it is difficult to reconcile the two.

Quotes About Landscape
