Rodney Romig Quotes

"When youre poor and hungry and frightened of failure, you often dont have the luxury of high values, lofty goals, and social conscience.

Roger Caillois Quotes

"I wonder, only in passing, whether the indelible ornamentation that man inscribes upon his own epidermis does not respond to a nostalgia for the universal internally generated coloring of corrollas, furs, shells, carapaces and wings. For man it has been necessary to create both works and tools outside of himself. But it may be that he retains an obscure nostalgia to create them on his own body, to make them a part of it rather than projecting them outwards onto an independent surface, where he is free to retouch them as he sees fit, which is precisely what painting and art are."

Percy Bysshe Shelley Quotes

"Poetry is a mirror which makes beautiful that which is distorted."
