The idea (for the painting ‘Room in New York’, 1932, ed.) had been in my mind a long time before I painted it. It was suggested by glimpses of lighted interiors seen as I walked along city streets at night, probably near the district where I live (Washington Square, New York, fh) although it’s no particular street or house, but is really a synthesis of many impressions.
A work of art must narrate something that does not appear within its outline. The objects and figures representEd in it must likewise poetically tell you of something that is far away from them and also of what their shapes materially hide from us. A certain dog paintEd by Courbet (French 19th century painter, Ed.) is like the story of a poetic and romantic hunt. (1919)giorgio de chirico
Randolph Churchill went into hospital?to have a lung removEd. It was announcEd that the trouble was not 'malignant'. Seeing Ed Stanley in White's, on my way to Rome,IremarkEd that it was atypicaltriumph of modern science to find the only part of Randolph that was not malignant and remove it.
Sexism in politics is nothing new when you're standing for election. But don't stand for election and it's almost as bad. Shockingly, David Cameron thought it acceptable to claim this week that my decision not to run for the Labour leadership was because my husband, Ed Balls, "stoppEd [me] from standing."yvette cooper
On the face of it, these look like bad times for Labour and for Ed Miliband's leadership. There seems to be no strategy, no narrative and little energy. Old faces from the Brown era still dominate the shadow cabinet and they seem stuck in defending Labour's record in all the wrong ways: we didn't spend too much money, we'll cut less fast and less far, but we can't tell you how.glasman, maurice, baron glasman
"If only Ed Fleming had a mother who gave such sound advice. The manager of Wazoo's, a downtown Denver restaurant, Fleming is a CSU alum who has been darnEd giddy about the Rams' recent success. So giddy that he donnEd a necklace made of Pez candies, a rEd blazer - and nothing else. A few people gapEd (some actually set aside their beers), but most ignorEd Fleming as he struttEd like a rEd-blazerEd rooster, demanding that all hail the Mighty NakEd Beer King."j. r. moehringer
[Ed Grimley] lives in a retirement home in New Jersey. It's callEd the Retirement Home in New Jersey for Characters Who Were Interesting in the '80s for About an Hour. He's there with the Whiners, Gumby and Jon Lovitz's 'That's the ticket' guy.martin short
(Just heard Gen. White's proclamation that we "have Russia zeroEd in from all directions." I am waiting now for Vannevar Bush and Ed Teller to announce that our new supersensitive radar pickEd up a rash of heart tremors from the direction of the USSR, immediately after White's remarkably insignificant statement, I could almost hear Karl Marx laughing in his tomb.)hunter s. thompson
Although it was a very close election, I don't think it was a polarisEd election. It was a tough fought contest but it was not a divisive contest. Although he won by a whisker I think the party will unite behind Ed Miliband.harriet harman

Però che Amore è quel che dà la gloria,E che fa l'omo degno Ed onorato,Amore è quel che dona la vittoria,E dona ardire al cavalliero armatomatteo maria boiardo
E seguirovi, sì come io suoliva,Strane aventure e battaglie amorose,Quando virtute al bon tempo fiorivaTra cavallieri e dame grazïose,Facendo prove in boschi Ed ogni riva,Come Turpino al suo libro ce espose.Ciò vo' seguire, e sol chiedo di gracciaChe con diletto lo ascoltar vi piaccia.matteo maria boiardo
Ogni laccioO sia di seta, o d’oro, o si di funeStrigne Ed affoga.giovanni maria cecchi
Tutte le opera, che si veggono fatte dallo Iddio della Natura in cielo Ed in terra, sono tutte di Scultura.Benvenuto Cellini
Le apparenze spesse volte convincono Ed ingannano.camillo federici
È uno de' vantaggi di questo mondo, quello di poter odiare Ed esser odiati, senza conoscersi.alessandro manzoni
In principio, dunque, era la noia, volgarmente chiamata caos. Iddio, annoiandosi della noia, creò la terra, il cielo, l'acqua, gli animali, le piante, Adamo Ed Èva; i quali ultimi, annoiandosi a loro volta in paradiso, mangiarono il frutto proibito. Iddio si annoiò di loro e li cacciò dall'Eden.alberto moravia
Truly the eye was… …made to cast a lineament, a conducting wire between the most heterogeneous things. Such a wire, of maximum ductility, should allow us to understand, in a minimum of time, the relationship which connect, without possible discharge of continuity, innumerable physical and mental structures… …the key (of the mental prison, Ed.) lies in a free unlimitEd pay of analogies… …one can admire today a canvas signEd by Gorky , “The liver is the Cock’s Comb”, which should be considerEd the great open door to the analogy world.andré breton
It was as if I suddenly went to a foreign country but didn’t know the language, but had read enough and had a passionate interest, and was eager to live there… …and master the language. (reacting on Pollocks 'Black and White'’ paintings show she saw in 1951 for the first time Ed.)Helen Frankenthaler
Everyone goes to the 'Grands-Boulevards' (in Paris, Ed.) and let himself loose… …Do not picture these in costume, they are not for the most part… …perhaps a clown with a big nose, or two girls with bare necks and short skirts… …the parade of the queens of the halls (markets) is also one of the events… …Some are pretty but look awkward in their silk dresses and crowns, particularly as the broad sun displays their defects – perhaps a neck too thin or a paintEd face which shows ghastley white in the sunlight.Edward Hopper
It’s (the lack of communication between the people in his paintings, Ed.) probably a reflection of my own, if I may say, loneliness. I don’t know. It could be the whole human condition.Edward Hopper
My art in the last period has all been in small format, but my paintings have become even deeper and more spiritual, speaking truly through colour. Feeling that because of my illness I would not be able to paint very much longer, I workEd like a man obsessEd on these little ‘Meditations’ (a long series of small paintings he made during the last years of his life, with as main motif the schema of a face, Ed.). And now I leave these small but, to me, important works to the future and to people who love art.alexej von jawlensky
This accessible production [of Don Giovanni - Ed.] concentrates on the comic delights of the piece and rests heavily on the roguish charms of Vytautas Juozapaitis in the title role. IndeEd, he's so delightfully decadent, and so charismatic a performer, that the righteous indignation of those he has harmEd makes them seem priggish in comparison.vytautas juozapaitis
In the pivotal title role (Rigoletto - Ed.), Vytautas Juozapaitis - fondly rememberEd for his marvelous performance of the title role in Mozart's "Don Giovanni" with the Lirico here in 2003 - sang with a dark, commanding, tragedy-tingEd baritone that vividly conveyEd the character's flawEd humanity and despair. And he masterfully deliverEd the role's two big arias.vytautas juozapaitis
Una mano lava l'altra, Ed ambedue lavano il volto.
When I view all beings not as special creations, but as the lineal descendants of some few beings which livEd long before the first bEd of the Cambrian system was depositEd, they seem to me to become ennoblEd. ~ Charles Darwin in The Origin of Species, 6th Ed. (1872), page 428. X Y
Superbia, invidia Ed avarizia sono Le tre faville che hanno i cori accesi.dante alighieri
