"Remembering lies is a full-time job, one best to quit."

Dana Schutz Quotes

"I often use hypothetical situations to generate information and imagery for paintings and to create a fictional space where a subject can be put into play."

David Bentley Hart Quotes

"To speak of "God" properly, then—to use the word in a sense consonant with the teachings of orthodox Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism, Baháí, a great deal of antique paganism, and so forth—is to speak of the one infinite source of all that is: eternal, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, uncreated, uncaused, perfectly transcendent of all things and for that very reason absolutely immanent to all things. God so understood is not something posed over against the universe, in addition to it, nor is he the universe itself. He is not a "being," at least not in the way that a tree, a shoemaker, or a god is a being; he is not one more object in the inventory of things that are, or any sort of discrete object at all."

Alice Neel Quotes

"Whether Im painting or not, I have this overweening interest in humanity. Even if Im not working, Im still analyzing people."

Rana Dasgupta Quotes

"You havent lost Iraki, you know. I dont know if it helps to say that. I lost a friend once myself, and I know how it goes.Hell find his way inside you, and youll carry him onward. Behind your heartbeat, youll hear another one, faint and out of step. People will say you are speaking his opinions, or your hair has turned like his.There are no more facts about him, that part is over. Now is the time for essential things. Youll see visions of him wherever you go. Youll see his eyes so moist, his intentions so blinding, youll think he is more alive than you. You will look around and wonder if it was you who died.Gradually youll grow older than him, and love him as your son. In the future, youll live astride the line separating life from death. Youll become experienced in the wisdom of grief. You wont wait until people die to grieve for them. Youll give them their grief while they are still alive, for then judgement falls away, and there remains only the miracle of being."

Quotes About Don Bosco

"At Camp Don Bosco, there were Bibles all over the place, mostly 1970s hippie versions like Good News for Modern Man. They had groovy titles like The Word or The Way, and translated the Bible into "contemporary English," which meant Saul yelling at Jonathan, "You son of a bitch!" (I Samuel 20:30). Awesome! The King James version gave this verse as "Thou son of the perverse rebellious woman," which was bogus in comparison. Maybe these translations went a bit far. I recall one of the Bibles translating the inscription over the cross, "INRI" (Iesus Nazaremus Rex Iudaeorum), as "SSDD" (Same Shit Different Day), and another describing the Last Supper — the night before Jesus death, a death he freely accepted — where Jesus breaks the bread, gives it to his disciples, and says, "Its better to burn out than fade away," but these memories could be deceptive." - Author: Rob Sheffield

And why is it all men thinkeverything a woman writes is trivial or trashy-or just plain sillydrivel? Dont men have romantic notions? Dont men dream of findingthe perfect love? And it seems to me, that Raymond was far moremushy-minded than Lily!" - Author: V.C. Andrews
