40 QUOTES FOR 40 YEARS

Photography Studies College (Melbourne) Australia celebrates 40 years of photographic education.
40 quotes for 40 years is part of this celebration. Each week a quote is sent out via SMS to everyone at PSC. You are invited to submit a picture in response to each quote.
This project is open to all PSC community
This week’s quote is “What we know is not much, what we do not know is immense.”, mis-attributed to the learned French philosopher and Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin SJ.
Reportedly the last words of Pierre-Simon, marquis de Laplace, the great French mathematician and astronomer, were: “Ce que nous connaissons est peu de chose, ce que nous ignorons est immense.” which translates in English as: “What we know is not much. What we do not know is immense.”

What I know here is represented by one box, while the other box represents what I do not know. I wonder if you’ll deduce which is which?

I’ve gathered some of my previous images in Rolling along…, where re-blogging was allowed.

This week’s quote is “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”, a sentiment dating back to the Greeks around the third century BC.
The wonderful writer Herbert George “H.G.” Wells created many fiction and non-fiction books, and other works, but appears not to be associated with the above quote, despite the assertion to the contrary. In “The Temptaion of Harringay” (written in 1929), H.G.Wells writes that “An artist who theorises about his work is no longer artist but critic.” — an interesting sentiment.
The puppeteer Jim Henson writing for Miss Piggy came up with a good take on the quote: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.”

Oscar Wilde, Irish Poet, Novelist, Dramatist and Critic 1854-1900

This week’s quote is “Imagination is more important than knowledge." attributed to Albert Einstein.
This morning, in SE Oz, we were able to observe a partial solar eclipse, as the Moon passed in front of the Sun. Sitting on my roof, I was able to successfully project the action, on the inside of a large cardboard box.
