"A room with pictures and a room without pictures differ nearly as much as a room with windows and a room without windows; for pictures are loopholes of escape to the soul, leading it to other scenes and spheres, where the fancy for a moment may revel, refreshed and delighted. Pictures are consolers of loneliness and a relief to the jaded mind and windows to the imprisoned thought; they are books, histories, and sermons - which we can read without the trouble of turning over the leaves."
Sir John Gilbert
