Quotes About Underestimating Yourself

"I believe you! the artiste exclaimed finally and extinguishes his gaze. I do! These eyes are not lying!

A sudden question is put to you, you dont even flinch, in one second you get hold of yourself and know what you must say to conceal the truth, and you speak quite convincingly, and not a wrinkle on your face moves, but - alas - the truth which the question stirs up from the bottom of your soul leaps momentarily into your eyes, and its all over!

Red flames lick his elbow.Theres a watch tattooed on his left wrist with ‘Fuck Time inscribed on its face. Fuck oclock.Hes not that tall, but his body is carefully cut. The lines of his face, his cheekbones and jaw, are sharp and precise. I can see the tufts of his blond underarm hairs and under them the ladder of his ribs. Hes beautiful, in the way that a knife is beautiful." - Author: Kirsty Eagar

Quotes About Black And White Art

"We can move in that direction as a country, in greater polarization - black people amongst blacks, and white amongst whites, filled with hatred toward one another. Or we can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand and to comprehend, and replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand, compassion and love.... What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black." - Author: Robert F.
