Quotations

  • 1892, Rudyard Kipling, When Earth's Last Picture is Painted (L’Envoi to 'The Seven Seas'),
    When Earth's last picture is painted, and the tubes are twisted and dried,/ When the oldest colors have faded, and the youngest critic has died,/ We shall rest, and, faith, we shall need it -- lie down for an aeon or two,/Till the Master of All Good Workmen shall put us to work anew.
