Snap Happy - Just quote me on that!

How about some quotes that capture the essence of photography?

You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
Ansel Adams

A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.
Eudora Welty

All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.
Susan Sontag

There are no bad pictures; that's just how your face looks sometimes.
Abraham Lincoln

What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.
Karl Lagerfeld

And last but not least, some words of the wise ...

Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.
Henri Cartier-Bresson
