To Us, The Music Makers

Bohemian“We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams; – World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams; Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world for ever, it seems”

Artists May You Have Your Wits About You Always

Sam Haskins“A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said, ‘ I love your pictures – they’re wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.’ He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: ‘That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove.”

Being An Artist

Being an artist means not numbering and counting but ripening like a tree, which does not force its sap, and stands confidently in the storms of Spring, not afraid that afterward Summer may not come. It does come. But, it comes only to those who are patient, who are there as if eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly silent and vast. I learn it every day of my life. Learn it with pain. I am grateful for patience is everything.

– Rainer Maria Rilke

Novelist and Journlist, Angela Carter on the Mystery of Film

Strangers used to gather together at the cinema and sit together in the dark, like Ancient Greeks participating in the mysteries, dreaming the same dream in unison.
Angela Carter

Think Different. Here’s To The Rebels.

Here’s to the crazy ones.

The misfits. The rebels.

The trouble-makers.

The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently.

They’re not fond of rules.

They have no respect for the status-quo.

You can quote them.

Disagree with them,

glorify, or vilify them.

But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.

Because they change things.

They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,

are the ones who do.
