Since Einstein developed his theory of relativity, and Rutherford and Bohr revolutionised physics, our picture of the world has radically changed.
A. N. Wilson
A picture is worth 10K words - but only those to describe the picture. Hardly any sets of 10K words can be adequately described with pictures.

I maintain that if you're a novelist and you go into an art museum, you'll come out a better novelist. And if you paint a picture for an hour you're a better actor at the end of it.
I don't want to knock photography, and I don't feel that film is up there but photography isn't. I think they're next to each other really, you know.

I have a visual mind, so when I read a book, I get an instant picture in my head and it's very clear.
Richard C. Armitage
