“What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

– Karl Lagerfeld

“o you not see how necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school an intelligence and make it a soul?”

– John Keats

“Any fool can be happy. It takes a man with real heart to make beauty out of the stuff that makes us weep.”

“Anybody can look at a pretty girl and see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl that she used to be. But a great artist-a master-and that is what Auguste Rodin was-can look at an old woman, protray her exactly as she is…and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be…and more than that, he can make anyone with the sensitivity of an armadillo, or even you, see that this lovely young girl is still alive, not old and ugly at all, but simply prisoned inside her ruined body. He can make you feel the quiet, endless tragedy that there was never a girl born who ever grew older than eighteen in her heart…no matter what the merciless hours have done to her. Look at her, Ben. Growing old doesn’t matter to you and me; we were never meant to be admired-but it does to them.”

– Robert A. Heinlein

“Art is the only serious thing in the world. And the artist is the only person who is never serious.”

– Oscar Wilde

“You might as well ask an artist to explain his art, or ask a poet to explain his poem. It defeats the purpose. The meaning is only clear thorough the search.”

– Rick Riordan

“One eye sees, the other feels.”

– Paul Klee
