We and the cosmos are one. The cosmos is a vast body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great gleaming nerve-centre from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time… Now all this is literally true, as men knew in the great past and as they will know again D. H. Lawrence quotes

~~~~~~~

We are not put on earth for ourselves, but are placed here for each other. If you are there always for others, then in time of need, someone will be there for you. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

We are rapidly approaching the point where everything is art and, therefore, nothing is art.- Margo Buccini

~~~~~~~

We came together underneath the stars above. What started out as liking soon developed into love. I sense a certain something that, in my heart, felt so true that I knew I waited all my life to fall in love with you. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

We can all be angels to one another. We can choose to obey the still small stirring within, the little whisper that says, ‘Go. Ask. Reach out. Be an answer to someone’s plea. You have a part to play. Have faith.’ We can decide to risk that He is indeed there, watching, caring, cherishing us as we love and accept love. The world will be a better place for it. And wherever they are, the angels will dance.

~~~~~~~

We can forgive a man for making a useful thing, as long as he does not admire it. The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely. All art is quite useless.

~~~~~~~

We cannot let another person into our hearts or minds unless we empty ourselves. We can truly listen to him or truly hear her only out of emptiness. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

We cannot tell the exact moment a friendship is formed; as in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses, there is at last one that makes the heart runover. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

We do good because it frees the heart. It opens us to a wellspring of happiness. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

We have art in order not to die of the truth.

~~~~~~~

We have learned to whittle the Eden Tree to the shape of a surplice peg, We have learned to bottle our parent twain in the yelk of an addled egg. We know that the tail must wag the dog, for the horse is drawn by the cart, But the devil never whoops, as he of old; It’s clever, but is it art?

~~~~~~~

We have only two criteria, really – artistic merit and excellence – keeping in mind, now, the diversity of the American people.

~~~~~~~

We know next to nothing about virtually everything. It is not necessary to know the origin of the universe; it is necessary to want to know. Civilization depends not on any particular knowledge, but on the disposition to crave knowledge. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

We love labels. We really do–as a society, I mean. It’s so much easier to understand the world around us if we name it, tie it down, and distance ourselves from the parts we don’t like…. We all want to beloved, we all want to love, and we all want to share the happiness in our lives with others. The experiment is how far we are willing to go to live our lives with that love. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

We might adapt for the artist the joke about there being nothing more dangerous than instruments of war in the hands of generals. In the same way, there is nothing more dangerous than justice in the hands of judges, and a paint brush in the hands of a painter! Just think of the danger to society! But today we haven’t the heart to expel the painters and poets because we no longer admit to ourselves that there is any danger in keeping them in our midst.

~~~~~~~

We must combine the toughness of the serpent and the softness of the dove, a tough mind and a tender heart.

~~~~~~~

We must learn not to disassociate the airy flower from the earthy root, for the flower that is cut off from its root fades, and its seeds are barren, whereas the root, secure in mother earth, can produce flower after flower and bring their fruit to maturity. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

We speak of profane arts; but there are none properly such; every art is holy in itself; it is the son of Eternal Light.

~~~~~~~

We were raised to be open to unusual and culturally different art.

~~~~~~~

We will sing of great crowds excited by work, by pleasure, and by riot; we will sing of the multicolored, polyphonic tides of revolution in the modern capitals; we will sing of the vibrant nightly fervor of arsenals and shipyards blazing with violent electric moons; greedy railway stations that devour smoke-plumed serpents; factories hung on clouds by the crooked lines of their smoke; bridges that stride the rivers like giant gymnasts, flashing in the sun with a glitter of knives; adventurous steamers that sniff the horizons; deep-cheated locomotives whose wheels paw the tracks like the hooves of enormous steel horses bridled by tubing; and the sleek flight of planes whose propellers chatter in the wind like banners and seem to cheer like an enthusiastic crowd.
