I feel as though I haven\'t seem an object until I actually start
painting it. Janet Fish
Against my love shall be as I am now,
With Time\'s injurious hand crush\'d and o\'erworn;
When hours have drain\'d his blood and fill\'d his brow
With lines and wrinkles; when his youthful morn
Hath travell\'d on to age\'s steepy night;
And all those beauties whereof now he\'s king
Are vanishing, or vanished out of sight,
Stealing away the treasure of his spring;
For such a time do I now fortify
Against confounding age\'s cruel knife,
That he shall never cut from memory
My sweet love\'s beauty, though my lover\'s life:
His beauty shall in these black lines be seen,
And they shall live, and he in them still green.
Government\'s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short
phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it
stops moving, subsidise it.
Art is not a pleasure, a solace, or an amusement; art is great
matter. Art is an organ of human life, transmitting man\'s reasonable
perception into feeling. In our age the common religious perception of men
is the consciousness of the brotherhood of man-we know that the well-being
of man lies in the union with his fellow men. True science should indicate
the various methods of applying this consciousness to life. Art should
transform this perception into feeling.
