    Anne Rice
    “You understand the fundamental principle of an icon, don’t you? “Inspired by God”
    “Not made by hands” “Supposedly directly imprinted upon the background material by God Himself”
    All Icons fundamentally were the work of God. A revelation in material form. And sometimes new icon could be made from another simply by pressing a new cloth to the original and a magic transfer would occur.”
    Anne Rice, Memnoch the Devil

    Leo Tolstoy, Great Short Works


  • #8
    Leo Tolstoy
    “Her eyes, always sad, now looked into the mirror with particular hopelessness. "She's flattering me," thought the princess, and she turned away and went on reading. Julie, however, was not flattering her friend: indeed, the princess's eyes, large, deep, and luminous (sometimes it was as if rays of light came from them in sheaves), were so beautiful that very often, despite the unattractiveness of the whole face, those eyes were more attractive than beauty. But the princess had never seen the good expression of thise eyes, the expression they had in moments when she was not thinking of herself. As with all people, the moment she looked in the mirror, her face assumed a strained, unnatural, bad expression.”
    Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

  • #14
    Leo Tolstoy
    “He looked at her as a man looks at a faded flower he has gathered, with difficulty recognizing in it the beauty for which he picked and ruined it. And in spite of this he felt that then, when his love was stronger, he could, if he had greatly wished it, have torn that love out of his heart; but now when as at that moment it seemed to him he felt no love for her, he knew that what bound him to her could not be broken.”
    Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina


  • #15
    Joseph Campbell
    “You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen.”
    Joseph Campbell

  • #17
    Joseph Campbell
    “Mythology is not a lie, mythology is poetry, it is metaphorical. It has been well said that mythology is the penultimate truth--penultimate because the ultimate cannot be put into words. It is beyond words. Beyond images, beyond that bounding rim of the Buddhist Wheel of Becoming. Mythology pitches the mind beyond that rim, to what can be known but not told.”
    Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth


  • #18
    Leo Tolstoy
    “It's like scarlet fever: one has to get it over."

    Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina, Vol 4 of 8

    Nikola Tesla


  • #21
    Ram Dass
    “The most exquisite paradox… as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all. As long as you want power, you can't have it. The minute you don't want power, you'll have more than you ever dreamed possible.”
    Ram Dass

    I have bought this wonderful machine — a computer ... it seems to me to be an Old Testament god, with a lot of rules and no mercy.”
    Joseph Campbell
