There is no greater fear in my life than having to part from this earth leaving feelings unspoken.
So I speak them freely and often....even though others may not agree.

Laws are partly formed for the sake of good men, in order to instruct them how they may live on friendly terms with one another, and partly for the sake of those who refuse to be instructed, whose spirit cannot be subdued, or softened, or hindered from plunging into evil.
Plato
Greek author & philosopher in Athens (427 BC - 347 BC)

Thought is the work of the intellect, reverie is its self-indulgence. To substitute day-dreaming for thought is to confuse a poison with a source of nourishment."

The artist must be in his work like God in his Creation, invisible and all-powerful, so that he is felt everywhere but not seen.

"Sigmund Freud was once asked to describe the characteristics of maturity, and he replied: lieben un arbeiten ('loving and working'). The mature adult is one who can love and allow himself or herself to be loved and who can work productively, meaningfully, and with satisfaction.

Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

ONE OF THE STRONGEST MOTIVES THAT LEAD MEN TO ART AND SCIENCE IS ESCAPE FROM EVERYDAY LIFE WITH ITS CRUDITY AND HOPELESS DREARINESS, FROM THE FETTERS OF ONES OWN EVER-SHIFTING DESIRES.
