~~~~~~~

You know… that a blank wall is an apalling thing to look at. The wall of a museum – a canvas – a piece of film – or a guy sitting in front of a typewriter. Then, you start out to do something – that vague thing called creation. The beginning strikes awe within you.

~~~~~~~

You must be my Lucky Star, ’cause you shine on me wherever you are. I just think of you and I start to glow, and I need your light, and baby you know. Starlight, starbright first star I see tonight. Starlight, starbright make everything all right. Starlight, starbright first star I see tonight. Starlight, starbright yeah. You must be my Lucky Star ’cause you make the darkness seem so far, and when I’m lost you’ll be my guide I just turn around and you’re by my side. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing, and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life. Anonymous quotes

You will look back on the times you laughed and you will cry. You will look back on the times you cried, and you will laugh. You will always remember close friends, and you will always keep memories of them in your heart. Life is hard, it’s tough, and it’s unfair. But everyone gets over the hurt and the pain eventually, and you always end up with a smile on your face…if you give it a chance. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

‘You’ll get over it.’ It’s the cliches that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life forever. You don’t get over it because ‘it’ is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it? The articluarness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not stopped by anyone but death. The hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no one else can fit it. Why would I want them to? Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

You’re confusing product with process. Most people, when they criticize, whether they like it or hate it, they’re talking about product. That’s not art, that’s the result of art. Art, to whatever degree we can get a handle on (I’m not sure that we really can) is a process. It begins in the heart and the mind with the eyes and hands.

~~~~~~~

Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art.

~~~~~~~

You’ve got to sing sometimes like you don’t need the money. Love sometimes like you’ll never get hurt. You’ve got to dance, dance, dance like nobody’s watching. It’s got to come from the heart if you want it to work. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

You’ve spent your whole life running and running, trying to catch up with something that has never been there for you. And all you’ve done is go farther and farther away from the precious love that’s been waiting for you all the time. Anonymous quotes

Why is it, when your looking for that someone, you find no one, but, once you find it, a lot more choices start showing up? But, if you leave that first love, then, they all start drifting away? Is that love’s way of testing your true feelings or to see if your ready for love? Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

Yes, I love him. I love him more than anything else in this world and there is nothing that I would like better than to hold on to him forever. But I know it’s not for the best. So know how matter how much my heart is going to break, I’ve got to let him go so he can know just how much I love him. Maybe if I’m lucky, he’ll come back but if not, I can make it through this. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

Yesterday is but a memory Tomorrow an uncharted course So live today so it will be A memory without remorse Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

You always feel better when you sing. Music touches people’s hearts. You know, it doesn’t go through your mental capacity, it just moves you and it will let you cry. It’s worth it doing a show and when you touch a crowd and move yourself at the same.

~~~~~~~

You are born an artist or you are not. And you stay an artist, dear, even if your voice is less of a fireworks. The artist is always there.

When that shutter clicks, anything else that can be done afterward is not worth consideration.

~~~~~~~

When the heart dares to speak, it needs no preparation. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

When the minds have learn’t to mingle, when no thought is wholly one’s own, and each has taken too much of the other ever to be entirely himself alone; when one has reached the beginning of seeing with a single eye, loving with a single heart, enjoying with a single joy; when there can be moments of identity and nothing is separate except bodies that long for one another.

Weeping willow with your tears running down, why do you always weep and frown? Is it because he left you one day? Is it because he could not stay? On your branches he would swing. Do you long for the happiness that day would bring? He found shelter in your shade. You thought his laughter would never fade.

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.

~~~~~~~

To an engineer, good enough means perfect. With an artist, there’s no such thing as perfect.

To any artist, worthy of the name, all in nature is beautiful, because his eyes, fearlessly accepting all exterior truth, read there, as in an open book, all the inner truth.

~~~~~~~

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

To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich, to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never, in a word to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common, this is to be my symphony. 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.
