Where is all the knowledge we lost with information?
T. S. Eliot
There are three forms of visual art: Painting is art to look at,
sculpture is art you can walk around, and architecture is art you can walk
So, now I have confess\'d that he is thine,
And I my self am mortgag\'d to thy will,
Myself I\'ll forfeit, so that other mine
Thou wilt restore to be my comfort still:
But thou wilt not, nor he will not be free,
For thou art covetous, and he is kind;
He learn\'d but surety-like to write for me,
Under that bond that him as fast doth bind.
The statute of thy beauty thou wilt take,
Thou usurer, that putt\'st forth all to use,
And sue a friend came debtor for my sake;
So him I lose through my unkind abuse.
Him have I lost; thou hast both him and me:
He pays the whole, and yet am I not free.
My old drama coach used to say, \'Don\'t just do something, stand there.\'
Gary Cooper wasn\'t afraid to do nothing.
