Any one who knows what the worth of family affection is among the lower classes, and who has seen the array of little portraits stuck over a laborer's fireplace will perhaps feel with me that in counteracting the tendencies, social and industrial, which every day are sapping the healthier family affections, the sixpenny photograph is doing more for the poor than all the philanthropists in the world.
~ Macmillan Magazine - [Photography]

~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning - [Photography]

Quotation Bullet

Men may be linked in friendship. Nations are linked only by interests.

Quotation Bullet

Nations without a past are contradictions in terms. What makes a nation is the past, what justifies one nation against others is the past, and historians are the people who produce it.
~ E. J. Hobsbawm - [Nations]

Quotation Bullet

Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.
~ Victor Hugo - [Nations]
