Quote of the Day: Walter Lippmann's Offhand Diss of Landscape Painters

It is like turning from the landscape in the parlor to the ploughed field outdoors. It is a return to the three dimensional world, after a sojourn in the painter's portrayal of his own emotional response to his own inattentive memory of what he imagines he ought to have seen.

-- Walter Lippmann, Public Opinion, Chapter 5

...kinda love the last half of the second sentence there.
