You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.

A work of art which isn’t based on feeling isn’t art at all.

Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things.

You can’t use up creativity. The more the you use, the more you have.

Maya Angelou

Château abandonné

La langue partit la première
Puis ce fut au tour des fenêtres
Il n’y eut plus que mort fondée
Sur le silence et sur l’obscurité.

Paul Éluard

Le vent est à la barre
L’horizon vertical
Vers le ciel dans ta main maladroite.

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.

I dream my painting and I paint my dream.

Maisons de Vitré III

It was still quiet in the house, and not a sound was heard from outside, either. Were it not for this silence, my reverie would probably have been disrupted by reminders of daily duties, of getting up and going to school.

A man builds a fine house; and now he has a master, and a task for life: he is to furnish, watch, show it, and keep it in repair, the rest of his days.

I invent nothing, I rediscover.

Auguste Rodin

Maisons de Vitré I

When one has finished building one’s house, one suddenly realizes that in the process one has learned something that one really needed to know in the worst way – before one began.

Still waters


As long as our eyes meet
There will be no boundaries
As long as we walk together
The path will be easy
As long as we fly
The sky will be ours
As long as we keep dreaming
Everything is possible.

Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.

Benjamin Franklin

Fishes live in the sea, as men do a-land; the great ones eat up the little ones.

William Shakespeare

Governing a great nation is like cooking a small fish – too much handling will spoil it.

Lao Tzu

It has always been my private conviction that any man who puts his intelligence up against a fish and loses had it coming.

John Steinbeck
