Image Quotes about Stage




Elizabeth Smith - [Also appearing on the stage was Elizabeth Smith, Bergen, N.Y., who with husband Robert was showing a unique painting on wood that depicted a festival honoring the Montgolfier brothers, inventors of the first practical hot air balloon. A small banner on each side contained the names of the men who first rode in the balloon.] We sold the balloon painting, ... That was the most expensive item for us. The show quality was less than last year. It appeared that furniture was slow. We did sell, however, up to the closing moments of the show.

Fernand Braudel - Events are the ephemera of history; they pass across its stage like fireflies, hardly glimpsed before they settle back into darkness and as often as not into oblivion. Every event, however brief, has to be sure a contribution to make, lights up some dark corner or even some wide vista of history. Nor it it only political history which benefits most, for every historical landscape--political, economic, social, even geographical--is illumined by the intermittent flare of the event.
