Robert Henri once said, "Art is, after all, only a trace - like a footprint which shows that one has walked bravely and in great happiness."

Kierkegaard's Word for Today

If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of potential -- for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible.

Word for Today

"Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you're alive you've got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive." MEL BROOKS
