Also, happy birthday to these four artist’s below–let us enjoy some quotes:


Carl Jung: “The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the object it loves.”

Aldous Huxley:

“An intellectual is a person who has discovered something more interesting than sex.”

“That we do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.”

“Abused as we abuse it at present, dramatic art is in no sense cathartic; it is merely a form of emotional masturbation. It is the rarest thing to find a player who has not had his character affected for the worse by the practice of his profession. Nobody can make a habit of self-exhibition, nobody can exploit his personality for the sake of exercising a kind of hypnotic power over others, and remain untouched by the process.”

George Bernard Shaw:

“Beauty is all very well at first sight; but who ever looks at it when it has been in the house three days.”

‘Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.”

“I am afraid we must make the world honest before we can honestly say to our children that honesty is the best policy.”

“If you leave the smallest corner of your head vacant for a moment, other people’s opinions will rush in from all quarters.”

“People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.”
“Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children.”
Stanley Kubrick:
Perhaps it sounds ridiculous, but the best thing that young filmmakers should do is to get hold of a camera and some film and make a movie of any kind at all.
“A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.”
“If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.”
