Illustrations[edit]

I'm not an experienced enough editor to know whether I am committing a faux pas, but I thought I'd comment that the images used in this article were excellent. Thanks to the editors and contributors.

Thanks for the appreciation — I am someone who encourages the use of fitting images to highlight many of the various meanings or evocations of many of the most significant quotes. ~ Kalki (talk · contributions) 00:55, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
