quotes

From The Writing Life (public library) by Annie Dillard –

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.

 

There is no shortage of good days. It is good lives that are hard to come by. A life of good days lived in the senses is not enough. The life of sensation is the life of greed; it requires more and more. The life of the spirit requires less and less; time is ample and its passage sweet. Who would call a day spent reading a good day? But a life spent reading – that is a good life.

Paris-based self-described “readymade artist” Claire Fontaine (2012):

Whatever you do, do something else.

artist and curator Richard Wentworth,

The point about art is it’s all in its interpretation. Art is something that you encounter and you know it’s in a different kind of space from the rest of your life, but is directly connected to it. … It’s a great privilege to be near art because when you’re near art, you can be another kind of person, and it allows you to think differently about things that you have never done.
