Emotional instability promotes the creation of beauty and joy.
How to Look at Art, Arts & Architecture, Ad Reinhardt, January 1947
"A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (via mercurieux)
I have of late,—but wherefore I know not,—lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises; and indeed, it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o’erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire,—why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! how infinite in faculties! in form and moving, how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension, how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me,—, no, nor woman neither,—nor woman neither.
"If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need."

"Son cœur est un luth suspendu;
Sitot qu’on le touche il resonne."
Pierre-Jean de Béranger
