Several quotes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This post is relevant today especially for many black leaders in our country who incite hatred and divisiveness instead of following wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!’ 

Means we use must be as pure as the ends we seek.

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

Inspired by Henri Matisse

Last Sunday my wife and I visited the Museum of Modern Art.

There was a huge exhibition of work of Henri Matisse there.

Two days passed and I feel inspired by everything we saw there and by his attitude to art.

“What I dream of is an art of balance, purity, and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter… a soothing, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue. ”
-Henri Matisse

When we left the museum I immediately told my wife that I am going to change my approach to photography and painting.

But it is necessary first to introduce to new followers my digital paintings that they did not see before..

Today I added links to some posts in the page “My paintings and tests”. To access them you need to click on words “My paintings and tests” on the black field below the header’s picture of any post.

In the process of adding old paintings I was pleasantly surprised that they varied nicely in all aspects and that many of followers of this blog made wonderful comments on some posts.

Here is one terrific example:

“I feel as though I’m driving and terribly lost!”

After I took a very serious look at the proper painting I understood his feelings very well.

I think that you should take a look on all my old paintings because I will look for new ways of expression immediately after “The Kelly’s File” tonight.

Please let me know your opinion of my work that started in January of this year.
