„Christ illustrates the purport of life as He descends from His transfiguration to toil, and goes forward to exchange that robe of heavenly brightness for the crown of thorns.“

—  Edwin Hubbell Chapin, P. 66.

„The transfiguring touch was to come, it seemed from a girl's lips; but it had not; he kissed, and life remained uncharmed.“

—  James Branch Cabell American author 1879 - 1958
Context: The transfiguring touch was to come, it seemed from a girl's lips; but it had not; he kissed, and life remained uncharmed.... at the bottom of his heart, he was still expecting the transfiguring touch to come, some day, from something he was to obtain or do, perhaps to-morrow.... Then he had by accident found out the sigil's power... Ch. 27 : Evolution of a Vestryman

„In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me:
As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.“

„I saw him through a thousand veils,
And has not this sufficed?
Now, must I look on the Devil robed
In the radiant Robe of Christ?“

—  Joyce Kilmer American poet, editor, literary critic, soldier 1886 - 1918
Context: Oh, he can be the forest, And he can be the sun, Or a buttercup, or an hour of rest When the weary day is done. I saw him through a thousand veils, And has not this sufficed? Now, must I look on the Devil robed In the radiant Robe of Christ?

„So long as the system of competition in the production and exchange of the means of life goes on, the degradation of the arts will go on“

—  William Morris author, designer, and craftsman 1834 - 1896
Context: So long as the system of competition in the production and exchange of the means of life goes on, the degradation of the arts will go on; and if that system is to last for ever, then art is doomed, and will surely die; that is to say, civilization will die. "Art Under Plutocracy" (1883).
