Quotes of Daub

“ The difficulty of accurate recognition constitutes one of the most serious sources of friction in war… War has a way of masking the stage with scenery crudely daubed with fearsome appartions. ”

- Karl von Clausewitz

“ Silence is the universal refuge, the sequel to all dull discourses and all foolish acts, a balm to our every chagrin, as welcome after satiety as after disappointment; that background which the painter may not daub, be he master or bungler, and which, however awkward a figure we may have made in the foreground, remains ever our inviolable asylum, where no indignity can assail, no personality can disturb us. ”

- Henry David Thoreau
