Arthur Rimbaud
“A thousand Dreams within me softly burn:
From time to time my heart is like some oak
Whose blood runs golden where a branch is torn.”
Arthur Rimbaud, Complete Works

Friedrich Nietzsche
“I know my fate. One day my name will be associated with the memory of something tremendous — a crisis without equal on earth, the most profound collision of conscience, a decision that was conjured up against everything that had been believed, demanded, hallowed so far. I am no man, I am dynamite.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Ecce Homo

Joseph Campbell
“If you want to understand what's most important to a society, don't examine its art or literature, simply look at its biggest buildings.”
Joseph Campbell

John Ruskin
“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. ”
John Ruskin
