quotation: W. Somerset Maugham: “In the country the darkness of night is friendly and familiar, but in a city…”


In the country the darkness of night is friendly and familiar, but in a city, with its blaze of lights, it is unnatural, hostile and menacing. It is like a monstrous vulture that hovers, biding its time.

W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) Discuss

just a word: promontory


promontory 

Definition: (noun) A high ridge of land or rock jutting out into a body of water; a headland.
Synonyms: foreland
Usage: Two miles farther on we were stopped by the promontory which shelters the bay from the southerly winds. Discuss.

QUOTATION: George Bernard Shaw


Men are wise in proportion, not to their experience, but to their capacity for experience.

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Discuss

CLARENCE HUDSON WHITE


Clarence Hudson White

An accountant with a passion for art, White began teaching himself photography by taking portraits of his friends and family in his spare time. In 1896, he won a gold medal from the Ohio Photographer’s Association. As time passed, he became increasingly devoted to photography, helping to found the Photo-Secession movement in 1902 and, a few years later, moving to New York to pursue photography full time. He went on to become a renowned teacher of photography. Who are some of his famous students? More… Discuss
