"losing my sight, losing my mind, i wish somebody would tell me im fine. I never realized i was spread too thin untill it was too late and i was empty within. Hungry, feeding on chaos and living on sin."

Arthur Ganson Quotes

"The impulse for me to want to make sculpture is because I want to make statements, really, on a purely emotional level. And its also somewhat of a challenge to see how that can be done with materials and objects that really are not emotional, in and of themselves."

Daniele Vare Quotes

"The verb to darn is explained in my pocket dictionary as follows: To mend by imitating the texture of the stuff, with thread and needle. But this definition does not correspond to the work accomplished by good Chinese housewives. When they mend a sock, they do not try to imitate the texture of the stuff. Their art makes no attempt at concealment: it even takes a certain pride in revealing itself."

Quotes About Kurt Barlow

"Had Kurt Cobain not committed suicide in 1994, would his genius have survived the continuous incisions of a media that was only too proud of its ability to chisel away at his fragile psyche in the years before he decided that hed had enough off their invasions? And, had Jimi Hendrix not passed way in 1970, would he, too have eventually fallen into decline, first equalled, then eclipsed by the brilliant wave of new guitarists: Robin Trower, Ritchie Blackmore, Mick Ronson, who emerged during the early 1970s? In death, Hendrix led by example: in life he could have been left for the dead." - Author: Dave Thompson

Quotes About Bored At Work

"By solitude the soul escapes from doing or suffering magic; it escapes from dullness, from boredom, by being aware. Nothing is boring if you are aware of it.

Le Guin

Quotes About Variatie

"In Darwins post-platonische werelds is de variatie de fundamentele werkelijkheid en veranderen berekende gemiddelden in abstracties. We blijven echter de voorkeur geven aan het oudere en tegengestelde standpunt: we zien variatie nog steeds als een massa onlogische toevalligheden, die hoofdzakelijk van waarde is omdat zon spreiding te gebruiken is voor de berekening van een gemiddelde, hetgeen we dan beschouwen als iets wat een essentie nog het best benadert." - Author: Stephen Jay Gould

Quotes About Ship Has Sailed

"By what seemed then and still seems a chance, the suggestion of a moments idle thought followed up upon familiar lines and paths that I had tracked a hundred times already, the great truth burst upon me, and I saw, mapped out in lines of light, a whole world, a sphere unknown; continents and islands, and great oceans in which no ship has sailed (to my belief) since a Man first lifted up his eyes and beheld the sun, and the stars of heaven, and the quiet earth beneath." - Author: Arthur Machen
