“A deadline is negative inspiration. Still, it's better than no inspiration at all.”

Chris liked a quote
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
“Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. … It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see.”
Ann Patchett

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Vincent van Gogh
“I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say 'he feels deeply, he feels tenderly'.”
Vincent Willem van Gogh

“One’s skill is never complete, one’s knowledge is forever lacking, one’s taste is invariably altered, one’s opinion ever subject to controversy. There is a complete and constant urge towards improvement.”
Andrew Loomis

Criss Jami
“When you're socially awkward, you're isolated more than usual, and when you're isolated more than usual, your creativity is less compromised by what has already been said and done. All your hope in life starts to depend on your craft, so you try to perfect it. One reason I stay isolated more than the average person is to keep my creativity as fierce as possible. Being the odd one out may have its temporary disadvantages, but more importantly, it has its permanent advantages.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Pablo Picasso
“When art critics get together they talk about Form and Structure and Meaning. When artists get together they talk about where you can buy cheap turpentine.”
Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso
“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”
