~~~~~~~

To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.

~~~~~~~

To choose art means to turn one’s back on the world, or at least on certain of its distractions.

To encourage literature and the arts is a duty which every good citizen owes to his country.’ George Washington

Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

To me there is no past or future in art. If a work of art cannot live always in the present it must not be considered at all. The art of the Greeks, of the Egyptians, of the great painters who lived in other times, is not an art of the past, perhaps it is more alive today than it ever was.

~~~~~~~

To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.

To separate journalism and poetry, therefore-history and poetry-to set them up at opposite ends of the world of discourse, is to separate seeing from the feel of seeing, emotion from the acting of emotion, knowledge from the realization of knowledge.

~~~~~~~

To sit for one’s portrait is like being present at one’s own creation.
