I consider my painting finished when my eyes goes to a particular spot on the canvas. But if I put the picture away about thirty feet on the wall and the movements keep returning to me and the eye seems to be responding to something living, then it is finished.
The objects that we have known in better days are the main props that sustain the weight of our affections, and give us strength to await our future lot. The future is like a dead Wall or a thick mist hiding all objects from our view; the past is alive and stirring with objects, bright or solemn, and of unfading interest.william hazlitt

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a Wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands, This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
You think that a Wall as solid as the earth separates civilization from barbarism. I tell you the division is a thread, a sheet of glass. A touch here, a push there, and you bring back the reign of Saturn.
If we do not depart from God, and disunite by that departure, and fall into disunion among ourselves, I am confident, we doing our duty and waiting upon the Lord, we shall find He will be as a Wall of brass round about us till we have finished that work which he has for us to do.Oliver Cromwell
I have these large pieces of recycled brown paper stretched on my apartment Wall and when I am not doing anything fashion-related, I'm drawing on it, playing with colour spectrums.
Flower in the crannied Wall, I pluck you out of the crannies, I hold you here, root and all, in my hand, Little flower but if I could understand What you are, root and all, and all in all, I should know what God and man is.
The word [anathema] literally means something set up or laid by to be kept, as a votive offering might be hung on a temple Wall after being devoted to a god. Because offerings devoted to the true God were commonly burnt in their entirety or otherwise destroyed, the word in biblical usage signifies something ‘accursed’ or doomed to destruction ”.
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season. The Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the Wall!'
Looking into it a bit, Jamie found that the model used by Wall Street to price LEAPs, the Black-Scholes option pricing model, made some strange assumptions.michael lewis
Keynes disdained inside information in fact, he once declared that Wall Street traders could make huge fortunes if only they would disregard their "inside" information and his own oracles were nothing but his minute scrutiny of balance sheets, his encyclopedic knowledge of finance , his intuition into personalities, and a certain flair for trading.robert heilbroner
Wall Street is populated by a bunch of people whose primary goal is to make money, and the rules are pretty much caveat emptor.
Like men we'll face the murderous cowardly pack, Pressed to the Wall, dying, but fighting back!

Stand us against a Wall and shoot us, well and good, you are victors. But why should I be brought before a Tribunal like a c-c-c-... I can't even get the word [criminal] out!robert ley
Every human being lived behind an impenetrable Wall of choking mist within which no other but he existed. Occasionally there were the dim signals from deep within the cavern in which another man was located so that each might grope toward the other. Yet because they did not know one another, and could not understand one another, and dared not trust one another, and felt from infancy the terrors and insecurity of that ultimate isolation there was the hunted fear of man for man, the savage rapacity of man toward man.Isaac Asimov
We will do precisely what the British nation has done all through its history when it had its back to the Wall turn round and fight for the things it believes in, and that is what I shall do.john major
Bricks will be most serviceable if made two years before using; for they cannot dry thoroughly in less time. When fresh undried bricks are used in a Wall, the stucco covering stiffens and hardens into a permanent mass, but the bricks settle and... the motion caused by their shrinking prevents them from adhering to it, and they are separated from their union with it. ...at Utica in constructing walls they use brick only if it is dry and made five years previously, and approved as such by the authority of a magistrate.vitruvius
A doctrine insulates the devout not only against the realities around them but also against their own selves . The fanatical believer is not conscious of his envy , malice , pettiness and dishonesty . There is a Wall of words between his consciousness and his real self.Eric Hoffer
The difficulty which I feel as a Judge, and always felt at the Bar, is this: a defendant is entitled to put his back against the Wall and to fight from every available point of advantage.
