Quote of the Day
Photography is like a moment, an instant. You need a half-second to get the photo. So it's good to capture people when they are themselves.
Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.
The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.
Laughter is an instant vacation.
There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.
Life changes in the instant. The ordinary instant.
I bought some instant water one time but I didn't know what to add to it.
You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life.
My view is different. Public relations are a key component of any operation in this day of instant communications and rightly inquisitive citizens.
I'm sorry, it's true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We're born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It's been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much - if at all.
To me, the magic of photography, per se, is that you can capture an instant of a second that couldn't exist before and couldn't exist after. It's almost like a cowboy that draws his gun. You draw a second before or after, you miss and you're dead - not them. To me, photography's always like that.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant?
Henry David Thoreau
Life changes fast. Life changes in the instant. You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends.
We live in a quick-fix society where we need instant gratification for everything. Too fat? Get lipo-sucked. Stringy hair? Glue on extensions. Wrinkles and lines? Head to the beauty shop for a pot of the latest miracle skin stuff. It's all a beautiful £1 billion con foisted upon insecure women by canny cosmetic conglomerates.
What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today when human contacts go so fast. Fashion is instant language.
When you explain to people what you're trying to do, as opposed to just making demands or delegating tasks, you can build instant trust, even if it's just for that short time you're on the phone.
The moral is that a career can be gone in an instant. And all you have in this world are the people you love.
Email, instant messaging, and cell phones give us fabulous communication ability, but because we live and work in our own little worlds, that communication is totally disorganized.
Marilyn vos Savant
You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics looks so petty.
A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you.
I now know that things I always thought I could depend on can crash in an instant. Because of the love that I have been shown, I now know what it means to be 'beloved.' I now know that no breath is to be taken for granted.
The history of mankind is the instant between two strides taken by a traveler.
I'm an instant star. Just add water and stir.
One look at an email can rob you of 15 minutes of focus. One call on your cell phone, one tweet, one instant message can destroy your schedule, forcing you to move meetings, or blow off really important things, like love, and friendship.
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
