In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
I knew it wasn’t too important, but it made me sad anyway.
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
The Little Prince
, Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it.
The Secret History
, Donna Tartt
Books are carefully folded forests/void of autumn/bound from the sun.
If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I like art, and by art I mean music, poetry, sex, paintings, the human body, literature… All of this is art to me.
