Tilda Swinton // "I am a great friend of chaos. It’s all we have. I mean, this whole concept of being able to manage life...life is risk, life is chance, life is being open to chance. The best things in my life, and probably in anybody’s life, come out of being open to being blown off course."
David Bowie // "Always go a little further into the water than you feel you're capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth and when you don't feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you're just about in the right place to do something exciting."
Bill Evans // "I think some young people want a deeper experience. Some people just wanna be hit over the head and, you know, if then they get hit hard enough maybe they'll feel something. You know? But some people want to get inside of something and discover, maybe, more richness. And I think it will always be the same; they're not going to be the great percentage of the people. A great percentage of the people don't want a challenge. They want something to be done to them...they don't want to participate. But there'll always be maybe 15% maybe, 15%, that desire something more, and they'll search it out...and maybe that's where art is, I think."
Tracy Chapman // "We are the spirit, the collective conscience. We create the pain, and suffering, and beauty in this world."
Leonard Cohen // "Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash."
John Muir // "The body seems to feel beauty when exposed to it as it feels the campfire or sunshine, entering not by the eyes alone, but equally through all one's flesh like radiant heat."
Björk // "I looked around me and thought about all the things that give me the greatest joy in life. It might be incredibly good wine that’s just perfect or the right music where you can tell that the artist has gone all the way, done anything to create a perfect song. I had to have a go at least once before I die and see if I could do the same thing."
David Hockney // "I draw flowers everyday on my iPhone and send them to my friends, so they get fresh flowers every morning."
Bruce Lee // "If you follow the classical pattern, you are understanding the routine, the tradition...you are not understanding yourself."
