“What strikes me is the fact that in our society, art has become something which is related only to objects and not to individuals, or to life. That art is something which is specialized or which is done by experts who are artists. But couldn’t everyone’s life become a work of art?”

Michel Foucault

Art’s greatest power 

to influence flows from its 

ambiguity.

Popularity 

has nothing to do with art 

that comes from the soul.

Artists resolved to 

endure don’t hesitate to 

befriend the crickets.

Choose whichever art 

you wish, then practice it as 

much as possible.

“Morality, like art, consists in drawing a line somewhere.” – G.K. Chesterton

“I would only believe in a God who knows how to dance.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

all is the creation and 

nurturing of life.
