Albert Einstein


The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery.
There comes a leap in consciousness, call it invitation or what you will
…and the solutions come to you, and you don’t know why.
-Albert Einstein

Muhammad Ali


Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact.
It's an opinion.
Impossible is potential.
Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is nothing.
-Muhammad Ali

Patti Smith and My Core Series


"The artist seeks contact with his intuitive sense of the gods, but in order to create his work,he cannot stay in this seductive and incorporeal realm. He must return to the material world in order to do his work. It's the artist's responsibility to balance mystical communication and the labor of creation."
-Patti Smith, Just Kids

Shelter from the Storm

Well, I'm livin' in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line
Beauty walks a razor's edge, someday I'll make it mine
If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born
Come in, she said
I'll give ya shelter from the storm
-Bob Dylan
