Quotes About Mona Lisa

“Mona Lisa only has eyes for me. There is no other. No one more interesting, more intelligent, more compelling. And what is extraordinary, if a dozen others crowd into this room, each one will feel the same. Each person who looks at her becomes the only person in her world. It is flattering and, at the same time, maddening, because she gives away nothing of herself.”
― R. A. Scotti

E.A. Bucchianeri
“(The Mona Lisa), that really is the ugliest portrait I’ve seen, the only thing that supposedly makes it famous is the mystery behind it,” Katherine admitted as she remembered her trips to the Louvre and how she shook her head at the poor tourists crowding around to see a jaundiced, eyebrow-less lady that reminded her of tight-lipped Washington on the dollar bill. Surely, they could have chosen a better portrait of the First President for their currency?”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

Henri Murger
“Mida te nimetate õnneks? Kas kirge, mis paneb inimese sellisesse seisukorda nagu Jacques praegu? Näidake talle nüüd mõnda meistriteost, ja ta ei vaataks selle poolegi. Ja selleks et kas või kord veel näha oma kallimat, on ta valmis talluma Tiziani või Raffaeli maalil. Vaat minu kallim on surematu ega reeda mind iialgi. Ta elab Louvre'is ja tema nimi on Mona Lisa.”
Henri Murger, The Bohemians of the Latin Quarter: Scenes de la Vie de Boheme

Orson Scott Card
“Graff smiled a little Mona Lisa smile, if Mona Lisa had been a pudgy colonel.”
Orson Scott Card, A War of Gifts
