[BKARTS] Quote compliation

Dear Friends

Thanks to all for your responses in my search for quotes. I have decided, at least for now, to abandon the idea of using quotes with the piece, but it has reawakened my love of quotes. One of my favorite quotes from my calligraphy days was from Montaigne: I quote others to better express myself.

Experience comes from bad judgement.

mystery - Anais Nin

Here are a few of his..

*You can only go halfway into the darkest forest; then you are coming out the other side. Chinese proverb.

*Penetrating so many secrets
we cease to believe in the unknowable.
But there it sits nevertheless,
calmly licking its chops.. H. L. Mencken.. American (1880-1956)

* My soul's the present shadow of a presence gone. Fernando Pessoa.

* Some nights, stay up till dawn
As the moon sometimes does for the sun.
Be a full bucket pulled up the dark way
of a well then lifted out into the light.

Something opens our wings. Something
makes boredom and hurt disappear.
Someone fills the cup in front of us.
We taste only sacredness. Jalal ad-Din ar- Rumi Persian (c. 1207-1273)

*The comtemplation of Eternity maketh the Soul immortal. Thomas Traherne

from Kel Flowers "artists create dreams for those who are wake" unknown

from Merle Harris:
Nature tells every secret once. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature does nothing uselessly. Aristotle

Art and nature are siblings, branches of one tree. John Fowles

Icicles and water - old differences dissolved - drip down together. Tashutsu

All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today. Chinese

Sitting quiety, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.

And Diana Britt sent a document full.
