Miguel Ruiz
“I will even feel guilty for not telling you how much I love you. The love that makes me happy is the love that I can share with you. Why do I need to deny that I love you? It is not important if you love me back. I may die tomorrow or you may die tomorrow. What makes me happy now is to let you know how much I love you.”
Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

Bert Dodson
“I believe that most of us, students and artists alike, ought to concern ourselves less with what we think is the right way to draw and more with letting our feelings flow through our hand. In this way, we stretch our dynamic nature. Our larger goal should be to draw in a way that expresses our vision.”
Bert Dodson, Keys to Drawing

“Eventually you will get into the habit of enjoying line as a language all of its own.”
Margaret Stevens, An Introduction To Drawing Flowers

“I think we live in a time where artists are very tidy and afraid of what others might think. They hesitate in expressing their views and opinions. So being original is rare. For me, it's about living the life you create for yourself, to create your kingdom. I think we should work on being our unique selves and becoming our greatest versions. I like to remind people to take the power to live their life the way they wish.”
Nuno Roque

Jay Woodman
“Music is for souls & hearts to dance & sing.
Art is for expressing your visionary being.
Words are tools for exploring & celebrating.

Time is a pool to swim & dream & create in.
Waste not one jot of what you are given!
Use everything you've got to maximise living.”
Jay Woodman

“The greatest thing about our times is that you don't need permission to express yourself the way you wish. Sometimes people tell themselves they can't do it, because they're missing this or that, but historically, specialization is a recent convention. Most of us are born natural polymaths.”
Nuno Roque

Alice Pung
“I wasn't afraid of being alone, but I was afraid of what people would think about my solitary state. People, even well-intentioned people, were always trying to take away our quiet little successes and joys and replace them with big, overarching fears. At this school, the worst thing was trying to rise above the limits set for you by the minds of others. Each girl was an island of her own dreams and insecurities, thoughts that made us different in a deeper way than the differences of musical taste, clothes or even culture. Thoughts about the best way to be stoic, how to live with very little control in life, how to make the most of a miserable time doing something that you were supposed to love. And if people thought that fifteen-year-old girls never thought about these sorts of things, it was only because we didn't have the words to express them.
We talked all the time, but we hadn't yet learned the words to link thoughts and ideas with any depth of feeling, because we didn't really talk to adults. We talked only to each other. And within this little world, we imprisoned one another. You could be anyone you wanted, Linh– until you were judged and held captive by everyone else's thoughts. Nothing has a stronger hold over a girl than the fear of the thoughts of her peers– thoughts that change five times in a day. No wonder things are so complicated with teenagers.”
alice pung, Laurinda

Author Jyoti Patel

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“ach, kon je dat maar weer uitdrukken, kon je het papier inblazen wat zo overdadig leeft; zodat het de spiegel werd van je ziel, zoals je ziel de spiegel is van de oneindige God! – Mijn vriend — Maar ik ga er aan te gronde, ik bezwijk onder het geweld van de pracht van wat ik zie.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, The Sorrows of Young Werther

Nitya Prakash
“I wish I were the kind of person who finds it difficult to express feelings. So others keep expressing theirs, hoping to find out. Wonder. Remain intrigued.

But here I am, feeling too much, magnifying it even more and expressing it all, Iike it’s our last conversation each time.”
Nitya Prakash
