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
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful we must carry it with us or we find it not. -Ralph
In faith I do not love thee with mine eyes,
For they in thee a thousand errors note;
But \'tis my heart that loves what they despise,
Who, in despite of view, is pleased to dote.
Nor are mine ears with thy tongue\'s tune delighted;
Nor tender feeling, to base touches prone,
Nor taste, nor smell, desire to be invited
To any sensual feast with thee alone:
But my five wits nor my five senses can
Dissuade one foolish heart from serving thee,
Who leaves unsway\'d the likeness of a man,
Thy proud heart\'s slave and vassal wretch to be:
Only my plague thus far I count my gain,
That she that makes me sin awards me pain.
Half of the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don\'t mean to do harm. But
harm does not interest them.
T. S. Eliot
