SAMUEL BUTLER
[1835 – 1902] English writer
All thoughts are like exposed photographic plates that have no visible image until they have been developed. - Samuel Butler

All our education is very much a case of retouching negatives till all the character and individuality is gone. - Samuel Butler

There is a photographer in every bush, going about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. - Samuel Butler

Count Gattinara di Zubiena sent me this morning what in the innocence of his heart he believes to be a photograph of himself—a smooth, sleek thing like a dummy, and with nothing in it that can conceivably remind me of himself. He did not know that in reality he was sending me a portrait of the photographer, and of his ideas as to what a young Italian Count should look like. - Samuel Butler
