Tim O'Brien
“But this too is true: stories can save us.”
Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried

James Baldwin
“The artistic image is not intended to represent the thing itself, but, rather, the reality of the force the thing contains.”
James Baldwin, Nobody Knows My Name

“One should embrace the artist's profession only after recognising in oneself an intense passion for Nature and the disposition to pursue it with a perseverance that nothing can shatter - thirst for neither approval nor financial profit. Do not be discouraged by the censure that might fall upon one's works - one must be armoured with a strong conviction which makes one go straight ahead fearing no obstacle. An unremitting task […] an unassailable conscience. (From a sketchbook of 1847).”
Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot

“And in the end, we were all just humans.. drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.”
Christopher Poindexter

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“Go take a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut,” murmured Paul Lazzaro in his azure nest. “Go take a flying fuck at the moon”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five
