[This Is What The Sabbath Should Feel Like. A Pause. Not Just A Minor Pause, But A Major Pause. Not Just Lowering The Volume, But A Muting. As The Famous Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel Put It, The Sabbath Is A Sanctuary In Time.]

Quotes About Doig

"Je lis des vieux livres parce que les pages tournées de nombreuses fois et marquées par les doigts ont plus de poids pour les yeux, parce que chaque exemplaire dun livre peut appartenir à plusieurs vies. Les livres devraient rester sans surveillance dans les endroits publics pour se déplacer avec les passants qui les apporteraient un moment avec eux, puis ils devraient mourir comme eux, usés par les malheurs, contaminés, noyés en tombant dun pont avec les suicidés, fourrés dans un poêle lhiver, déchirés par les enfants pour en faire des petits bateaux, bref ils devraient mourir nimporte comment sauf dennui et de propriété privée, condamnés à vie à létagère.

Quotes About Thirst For Power

"Ive heard about the past, the thirst for power, and the innocent blood thats been shed. And yes, looking at the present, the future doesnt seem so promising. I know whats going on, one man turning his country into a graveyard and turning children into soldiers. Children massacring their fellow students. Greediness slowly sinking us into a black hole. Im not blind, Gideon. I can see it. I know the world is full of unthinkable evil, but thats not all the world is. There are moments when nations come together to help others in need. One man stands and fights for what he believes in and makes a change. The world may be filled with evil people, but its also filled with good people." - Author: Melody Manful

Quotes About Misunderstanding Someone

"The painter is not simply someone who looks and who sees. Above all, the artist is someone who exposes a personal vision by rendering it visible. The painter shows or allows the seeing of "something" that without him, without his intervention, would not be seen. He manifests through his work a possibility of seeing that would otherwise remain latent. In other words, painting is an art that reveals or unveils the world from an angle that the world itself does not present to us. Painting creates. It does not limit itself to imitation or reproduction. Any desire to confine painting within the limits of déjà vu would be a gross misunderstanding of the essence of what painting is. Painting allows us to see that which without it would never be seen." - Author: Marcel Paquet
