John Ruskin Quote: “No divine terror will ever be found in the work of the man who wastes a colossal strength in elaborating toys; for the first lesson that terror is sent to teach us is, the value of the human soul, and the shortness of mortal time.”
John Ruskin Quote: “No one can ask honestly or hopefully to be delivered from temptation unless he has himself honestly and firmly determined to do the best he can to keep out of it.”
John Ruskin Quote: “Surely our clergy need not be surprised at the daily increasing distrust in the public mind of the efficacy of prayer.”
John Ruskin Quote: “One of the major obstacles impeding any positive future change in our lives is that we are too busy with our current work or activity. Levi quit his tax-work, Peter stopped fishing at lake, Paul ceased being a priest. They all left their jobs because they thought it was necessary.”
John Ruskin Quote: “Men have commonly more pleasure in the criticism which hurts than in that which is innocuous, and are more tolerant of the severity which breaks hearts and ruins fortunes than of that which falls impotently on the grave.”
John Ruskin Quote: “The greatest minds are marked by nothing more distinctly than an inconceivable humility, and acceptance of work or instruction in any form and from any quarter. They will learn from everybody, and do anything that anybody asks of them so long as it involves only toil, or what other men might think degradation.”
John Ruskin Quote: “There is a satisfactory and available power in every one to learn drawing if he wishes, just as nearly all persons have the power of learning French, Latin or arithmetic, in a decent and useful degree.”
John Ruskin Quote: “Nearly all the powerful people of this age are unbelievers, the best of them in doubt and misery, the most in plodding hesitation, doing as well as they can, what practical work lies at hand.”
John Ruskin Quote: “Multitudes think they like to do evil; yet no man ever really enjoyed doing evil since God made the world.”
John Ruskin Quote: “The power of painter or poet to describe what he calls an ideal thing depends upon its being to him not an ideal but a real thing. No man ever did or ever will work well but either from actual sight or sight of faith.”
John Ruskin Quote: “If there be any one principle more widely than another confessed by every utterance, or more sternly than another imprinted on every atom of the visible creation, that principle is not liberty, but law.”
John Ruskin Quote: “To study one good master till you understand him will teach you more than a superficial acquaintance with a thousand: power of criticism does not consist in knowing the names or the manner of many painters, but in discerning the excellence of a few.”
John Ruskin Quote: “We are always in these days endeavoring to separate intellect and manual labor; we want one man to be always thinking, and another to be always working, and we call one a gentleman, and the other an operative; whereas the workman ought often to be thinking, and the thinker often to be working, and both should be gentlemen in the best sense.”
John Ruskin Quote: “I have not written in vain if I have heretofore done anything towards diminishing the reputation of the Renaissance landscape painting.”
John Ruskin Quote: “It does not much matter that an individual loses two or three hundred pounds in buying a bad picture, but it is to be regretted that a nation should lose two or three hundred thousand in raising a ridiculous building.”
John Ruskin Quote: “As the art of life is learned, it will be found at last that all lovely things are also necessary: – the wild flower by the wayside, as well as the tended corn; and the wild birds and creatures of the forest, as well as the tended cattle; because man doth not live by bread only, but also by the desert manna; by every wondrous word and unknowable work of God.”
John Ruskin Quote: “So then, men may let their great powers lie dormant, while they employ their mean and petty powers on mean and petty objects; but it is physically impossible to employ a great power, except on a great object.”
John Ruskin Quote: “The beauty of the animal form is in exact proportion to the amount of moral and intellectual virtue expressed by it.”
John Ruskin Quote: “The scholar is early acquainted with every department of the impossible.”
John Ruskin Quote: “He who has learned what is commonly considered the whole art of painting, that is, the art of representing any natural object faithfully, has as yet only learned the language by which his thoughts are to be expressed.”
John Ruskin Quote: “Whether we force the man’s property from him by pinching his stomach, or pinching his fingers, makes some difference anatomically; morally, none whatsoever.”
John Ruskin Quote: “I am trying to prove to you the honour of your houses and your hills; not that the Church is not sacred – but that the whole Earth is.”
