Everyone needs it

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

Depth (quotes and photos)

DEPTH

The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

The mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy. What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls the butterfly.

Richard Bach

It is not length of life, but depth of life.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Depth of friendship does not depend on length of acquaintance.

Rabindranath Tagore

We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.

George Orwell

Quotes about intelligence

There are posts in many blogs that everyone must read again and again.

Some important posts I already reblogged.

Today I want to introduce to you “Quotes about intelligence”.

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT?   by  JF

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT? by JF

 

Quotes of Joseph Addison

Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.

Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life.

What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to a human soul.

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

Friendship improves happiness, and abates misery, by doubling our joys, and dividing our grief.

There is nothing that makes its way more directly into the soul than beauty.

Everything that is new or uncommon raises a pleasure in the imagination, because it fills the soul with an agreeable surprise, gratifies its curiosity, and gives it an idea of which it was not before possessed.

Life and quotes of Wassily Kandinsky.

Yesterday I received incredible information connected in unbelievable mysterious ways with Wassily Kandinsky. I am going to publish it this week.

In the meantime I recommend all of my followers and guests to read about life of this artist HERE and in other articles on the internet and to read his quotes below.

Everything starts from a dot. ”

There is no must in art because art is free. ”

The artist must train not only his eye but also his soul. ”

The more frightening the world becomes … the more art becomes abstract. ”

Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”

Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential. ”

The true work of art is born from the ‘artist’: a mysterious, enigmatic, and mystical creation. It detaches itself from him, it acquires an autonomous life, becomes a personality, an independent subject, animated with a spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of being. ”

The artist is not a ‘Sunday child’ for whom everything immediately succeeds. He does not have the right to live without duty. The task that is assigned to him is painful, it is a heavy cross for him to bear. ”

To create a work of art is to create the world.”
