SUDDENLY I SEE

“Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such” 

― Henry Miller

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” 
― Pablo Picasso

THE NEVERENDING STORY – FACING YOUR TRUE SELF

“Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument. The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its purpose 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”— one who carries and shapes the unconscious, psychic forms of mankind.”

― C.G. Jung

“When man becomes fully conscious of his powers, his role, his destiny, he is an artist and he ceases his struggle with reality {….} has has become permanently out of step with humanity{….} he transmutes his real experience of life into spiritual equations.”

― Henry Miller, The Wisdom of the Heart

K T TUNSTALL – SUDDENLY I SEE

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” 

― Albert Einstein

“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” 

― Oscar Wilde, The Critic as Artist

“Inside you there’s an artist you don’t know about… say yes quickly, if you know, if you’ve known it from before the beginning of the universe.” 

— Rumi
