He who takes his life for granted is a pencil without an eraser.
- C.S. Lewis, In Humanity
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
To draw, you must close your eyes and sing.
Pablo Ruiz y Picasso
The expense of spirit in a waste of shame
Is lust in action: and till action, lust
Is perjur\'d, murderous, bloody, full of blame,
Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust;
Enjoy\'d no sooner but despised straight;
Past reason hunted; and no sooner had,
Past reason hated, as a swallow\'d bait,
On purpose laid to make the taker mad:
Mad in pursuit and in possession so;
Had, having, and in quest, to have extreme;
A bliss in proof,-- and prov\'d, a very woe;
Before, a joy propos\'d; behind a dream.
All this the world well knows; yet none knows well
To shun the heaven that leads men to this hell.
