We’ve scoured the Internet and compiled some of our all-time favorite quotes about photography — from the deeply inspirational, to the snarky, to the hilarious and potentially misattributed (did Abraham Lincoln ever REALLY say that?) — and placed them all on top of beautiful photos captured by the community and up for licensing on the 500px Prime marketplace.

So, if you want to know what Ansel Adams said when he was asked which he would save from a burning building, his wife or his negatives, go ahead and scroll on down.
