Jean Arp Quotes

"Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation...tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding, and trilling bolster his ego. His anxiety subsides. His inhuman void spreads monstrously like a gray vegetation."

Christopher Loren Quotes

"I believe emotional suppression fueled by a shamed imagination lies at the root of societys ailments. It is the believing leaders of religion that keep the "denial circus" going decade after decade.

It is time to wake up and replace the preacher with the human teacher—a human who is the intelligence of their whole organism."

"Though plucking artichoke leaves doesnt mend all cracked spirits as firmly as pea shelling, it has its own curative power. There is a Dutch saying: "Bitter in the mouth cures the heart." If you happen to have a friend shaken by heartache, hand over a bag of raw artichokes. Once she has relieved them of their leaves, encourage one brave bite.
