Turners House

"I have no secret but hard work. This is the secret that many never learn, and they don't succeed because they don't learn it. Labour is the genius that changes the world from ugliness to beauty, and the great curse to a great blessing."

(J M W Turner)

"If I could find anything blacker than black, I'd use it."

"I can think of no other edifice constructed by man as altruistic as a lighthouse. They were built only to serve."

(George Bernard Shaw)

It might have been the lighthouse spark
Some sailor, rowing in the dark,
Had importuned to see!

(Emily Dickinson)
