A writer should never install himself before a panorama, however grandiose it may be.
Blaise Cendrars
‘The Panorama’ is also the last place anywhere in New York where the World Trade Center still stands, whole, as it stood in the early morning of September 11. I can also see the corner where I saw the first tower fall and howled out loud. Seeing the buildings again here is uplifting, healing.

You can’t take this speck of dust in this midst of all this incredible panorama of birth and complexifying and say…this is the only place that [life] happens. It’s like turning your back on the whole idea of growth and evolution.
Gene Roddenberry

Alan Watts

To us the enjoyment of solitude, complete independence, and the beauty of undefiled panoramas is absolutely essential to happiness.
Bob Marshall

My Real Children starts quietly, then suddenly takes you on two roller-coaster rides at once, swooping dizzily through a double panorama and ending in a sort of super Sophie’s Choice. A daring tour de force.
Ursula K. Le Guin
Certain people have certain ways of focusing on things, and some arrange their lens to a pinhole in order to focus only on their goal. Others have a giant lens, and they take in the whole panorama. I was that pinhole kind of person.
Wendy Whelan
Your kids are launched. You love your work but you understand how to place it in the panorama of the rest of your life. There’s this line in the book, and when I wrote it I thought yes, that’s it – if you think of life as a job, maybe by the time you get to, say, in my case, 60, you’ve finally gotten good at it.
Anna Quindlen
We can’t just have mainstream behavior on television in a free society, we have to make sure we see the whole panorama of human behavior.
Jerry Springer
Panorama is the first word for landscape in Greek. It was about [how today] we see everything, we get to see everything, everything is shown to you whether you want it or not, but all of the time you only see fragments of reality. The big picture we really don’t see; it’s kind of hard to make it up.

Ambrose Bierce
In writing ‘A Portrait of Athens’ I have attempted – rather impressionistically – to give a panorama of its present. But I have also brought in its past because I sincerely think that there is a continuity.

Paul Hollywood
In Tharoor’s hands [the story of modern India] is transformed into Mahabharata magic…. Endlessly inventive, irreverent, wise, ingenious,… it takes on at one level or another the entire panorama of modern India….Energetic and eventful.
M. G. Vassanji
To the person who desires nothing and does not get entangled in desires, the manifold changes of nature are one panorama of beauty and sublimity.
Swami Vivekananda
