[You Differ From A Great Man In Only One Respect: The Great Man Was Once A Very Little Man, But He Developed One Important Quality: He Recognized The Smallness And Narrowness Of His Thoughts And Actions. Under The Pressure Of Some Task That Meant A Great Deal To Him, He Learned To See How His Smallness, His Pettiness Endangered His Happiness. In Other Words, A Great Man Knows When And In What Way He Is A Little Man. A Little Man Does Not Know He Is Little And Is Afraid To Know. He Hides His Pettiness And Narrowness Behind Illusions Of Strength And Greatness, Someone Else's Strength And Greatness. He's Proud Of His Great Generals But Not Of Himself. He Admires An Idea He Has Not Had, Not One He Has Had. The Less He Understands Something, The More Firmly He Believes In It. And The Better He Understands An Idea, The Less He Believes In It.]

Quotes About Gandalf Ents

"I will vouch for him before the seat of Denethor, said Gandalf. And as for valour, that cannot be computed by stature. He has passed through more battles and perils than you have, Ingold, though you be twice his height; and he comes now from the storming of Isengard, of which we bear tidings, and great weariness is on him, or I would wake him. His name is Peregrin, a very valiant man. Man? said Ingold dubiously; and the others laughed. Man! cried Pippin, now thoroughly roused. Man! Indeed not! I am a hobbit and no more valiant than I am a man, save perhaps now and again by necessity. Do not let Gandalf deceive you!" - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Quotes About Contrast In Photography

"PLAINVILLE WAS A QUAINT picturesque town. Northern Californias version of Andy Griffiths Mayberry. Bucolic enough to provide cinematic contrast for any low-budget stalk-and-slash film. Juxtaposition played just as important a role in still photography as it did in cinematography. Maybe thats why Natalie Jones had picked Plainville for her final descent into darkness. The climactic scene in a comedic tragedy. Cast of one. Audience of one. Curtain closed." - Author: Virna DePaul
