I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.
All paid jobs absorb and degrade the mind. -Aristotle
The unexamined life is not worth living.- Socrates
How happy is the blameless vestal's lot? The world forgetting by the world forgot. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, each prayer accepted and each wish resigned. -ESoTSM
“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.”
― Sylvia Plath
A wretched soul, bruised with adversity,
We bid be quiet when we hear it cry;
But were we burdened with like weight of pain,
As much or more we should ourselves complain.
Numbing the pain for a while will make it so much worse when you finally feel it. -Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
I believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown.
