Graphic Arts B.A.
"Without any doubt, the extent to which the artist is capable of reproducing, of objectifying through painting or any other medium, the external objects from whose constraint he suffers so painfully will determine his relative success in escaping from these objects' tyranny and in avoiding becoming the victim of actual psychosis."
-Andre Breton (on Salvador Dali)
"But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin."
-Brave New World (Aldous Huxley)
"Experience is not what happens to you; it's what you do with what happens to you."
"I am impossible to forget, but hard to remember."
"The message of great art is to disturb."
"Give a man a mask, and he will show you his true face."
"The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing."
"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."
-Henry David Thoreau
"In the day we are angry, disappointed, or indignant, but never 'in the blues,' and never melancholy. When things go wrong ten o'clock in the morning, we -or rather you- swear and knock the furniture about; but if misfortune comes at 10 P.M., we read poetry, or sit in the dark, and think what a hollow world this is."
-Jerome K. Jerome
"The most difficult thing in the world is to know how to do a thing and to watch someone else do it wrong, without comment."
"I never forget a face, but in your case I'll be glad to make an exception."
