“Everything worth doing takes time.  You have to write a hundred bad songs before you write one good one.  And you have to sacrifice a lot of things that you might not be prepared for.  Like it or not, you are in this alone and have to follow your own star.”

“Each of us bears the imprint of a friend met along the way; in each the trace of each. For good or evil. In wisdom or in folly. Everyone stamped by everyone.”

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

picasso

“Paintings are but research and experiment. I never do a painting as a work of art. All of them are researches. I search constantly and there is a logical sequence in all this research.”

-picasso

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

-mark twain

picasso

Different themes inevitably require different methods of expression. This does not imply either evolution or progress; it is a matter of following the idea one wants to express and the way in which one wants to express it.
