Quotes About Turning Defeat Into Victory

"It is not I who mix the colors but your own vision, he answered. I only place them next to one another on the wall in their natural state; it is the observer who mixes the colors in his own eye, like porridge. Therein lies the secret. The better the porridge, the better the painting, but you cannot make good porridge from bad buckwheat. Therefore, faith in seeing, listening, and reading is more important than faith in painting, singing, or writing. He took blue and red and placed them next to each other, painting the eyes of an angel. And I saw the angels eyes turn violet. I work with something like a dictionary of colors, Nikon added, and from it the observer composes sentences and books, in other words, images. You could do the same with writing. Why shouldnt someone create a dictionary of words that make up one book and let the reader himself assemble the words into a whole?" - Author: Milorad Pavić

Quotes About Yin And Yang

"Metal is from the earth, he thought as he scrutinized. From below: from that realm which is the lowest, the most dense. Land of trolls and caves, dank, always dark. Yin world, in its most melancholy aspect. World of corpses, decay and collapse. Of feces. All that has died, slipping and disintegrating back down layer by layer. The daemonic world of the immutable; the time-that-was.And yet, in the sunlight, the silver triangle glittered. It reflected light. Fire, Mr. Tagomi thought. Not dank or dark object at all. Not heavy, weary, but pulsing with life. The high realm, aspect of yang: empyrean, ethereal. As befits work of art. Yes, that is artists job: takes mineral rock from dark silent earth transforms it into shining light-reflecting form from sky.Has brought the dead to life. Corpse turned to fiery display; the past had yielded to the future." - Author: Philip K. Dick
