“Stars are always dancing. Sometimes they dance twinkling away with the rhythm of your joyful heart and sometimes they dance without movement to embrace your heartache as if frozen sculptures of open-armed sadness.”
In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.”
“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” —Yves Saint Laurent
Personality is the glitter that sends your little gleam across the footlights and the orchestra pit into that big black space where the audience is.
It is no use trying to sum people up. One must follow hints, not exactly what is said, nor yet entirely what is done.
John Greenleaf Whittier
Absence of occupation is not rest; A mind quite vacant is a mind distressed.
To attempt to build up theories of art, or to form a new style, would be an act of supreme folly. It would be at once to reject the experiences and accumulated knowledge of thousands of years. On the contrary, we should regard as our inheritance all the successful labours of the past, not blindly following them, but employ simply as guides to find the true path.”
