“Sculptural form is not the imitation of natural form
any more than poetry is the imitation of natural conversation . . .
While a piece of sculpture may contain visual forms with which we are acquainted by daily experience, it is essentially a design worked out by means of the juxtaposition of masses in space, just as poetry is a design wrought by the sounds of words in time.”
~ Elizabeth Wyn Wood (October 8, 1903 – January 27, 1966)
“Day of Atonement”
To keep your secret is wisdom;
to expect others to keep it is folly.
William Samuel Johnson (October 7, 1727 – November 14, 1819)
BALD AND FREE DAY
I am still shocking people today, and I don’t know why.
Is it because I’m a woman talking about sex and men?
One magazine said that no one writes sex in the back of a Bentley
better than Jackie Collins.
~ Jackie Collins (October 4, 1937 – September 19, 2015)
“There is no word for art.
We say it is to transfer something from the real to the unreal.
I am an owl, and I am a happy owl.
I like to make people happy and everything happy.
I am the light of happiness and I am a dancing owl.”
~ Ashevak Kenojuak (October 3, 1973 – January 8, 2013)
A book is the only immortality.
~ Rufus Choate (October 1, 1799 – July 13, 1859)
