Quotations for Saturday

SHARE


‘The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its purposes through him. As a human being he may have moods and a will and personal aims, but as an artist he is ‘man’ in a higher sense – he is ‘collective man’, a vehicle and molder of the unconscious psychic life of mankind.‘ Carl Jung


'The dead were and are not. Their place knows them no more, and is ours today. Yet they were once as real as we, and we shall tomorrow be shadows like them....The poetry of history lies in the quasi-miraculous fact that once, on this earth, once, on this familiar spot of ground, walked other men and women, as actual as we are today, thinking their own thoughts, swayed by their own passions, but now all gone, one generation vanishing into another, gone as utterly as we ourselves shall shortly be gone, like ghosts at cockcrow.' G. M. Trevelyan

'Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers.' Hans Christian Andersen

'The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men - from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms.' Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
