the wisdom

“…lend your ears to music, open your eyes to painting, and…stop thinking! Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to ‘walk about’ into a hitherto unknown world. If the answer is yes, what more do you want?” 

“…for it is a great adventure, love. 
blinding. torn between two states of being. 
floating. vicious violent beautiful beast. 
to be caught firm between the teeth, smiling. 
feeling as if you’ve never felt before. 
held digging in with each fingernail 
to its flying racing horrid speed…”
-Jason Reeves

"When you look at yourself from a universal standpoint, something inside always reminds or informs you that there are bigger and better things to worry about."
-Albert Einstein 

“The secret is not in your hand or your eye or your voice, my aunt told me once. The secret is in your heart. Of course, she said, knowing that doesn't make it any easier.”
- Brian Andreas

"I think the biggest disease 
the world suffers from in this day and age 
is the disease of people feeling unloved. 
I know that I can give love 
for a minute, for half an hour, 
for a day, for a month, 
but I can give. 
I am very happy to do that, 
I want to do that."
-Princess Diana
