Source of these quotes about photographic composition?

Help me find the source of these quotes about photographic composition.

Quotes:

1. "It is design and arrangement that makes pictures, regardless of subject"
2. "The novice snaps his camera carelessly at nature. The artist seeks to arrange it."

I think these two come from the same source, which I cannot find. Searching with Google returns the second one, as a quote too. I e-mailed the person who quoted it without an answer (yet). I shared these quotes with a friend, that's why I have them. I had to transcribe them because they were on a PDF or scanned JPGs.

Upon further googling, it appears they are both from the same book.

My Google-fu is definitely rusted. Thanks!
