“ When once the itch of literature comes over a man, nothing can cure it but the scratching of a pen. ”

Samuel Lover



“ Hang the bard, and cut the punster,

Fling all rhyming to the deuce,

Take a business tour through Munster,

Shoot a landlord — be of use. ”

Richard D'Alton Williams - Advice to a Young Poet

ON ART & THE SOUL

Visions of Innocence

" Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye...
it also includes the inner pictures of the soul."

Edvard Munch-

" The many great gardens of the world, of literature
and poetry, of painting and music, of religion and architecture, all make the point as clear as possible:
The soul cannot thrive in the absence of a garden.
If you don't want paradise, you are not human; and if you are not human, you don't have a soul. "
Thomas Moore

"The human soul has still greater need of the ideal
than the real . It is by the real that we exist:
it is by the ideal that we live"
VICTOR HUGO

-----------------
That God does not exist, I cannot deny, That my whole being cries out for God I cannot forget.
Jean-Paul Sartre

All human actions are equivalent and all are on principle doomed to failure.
Jean-Paul Sartre

All that I know about my life, it seems, I have learned in books.
Jean-Paul Sartre

As far as men go, it is not what they are that interests me, but what they can become.
Jean-Paul Sartre

I do not believe in God; his existence has been disproved by Science. But in the concentration camp, I learned to believe in men.
Jean-Paul Sartre
