"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life" Pablo Picasso You know this is true when you look at a painting or listen to a piece of music and just feel how beautiful life is. It's good to immerse in art once in a while.
"That is part of the beauty of literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings; that you're not lonely or isolated from anyone. That you belong. Scott Fitzgerald great quotes about books
"So this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad, and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be." I have never read the book nor seen the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
If you are asking yourself (and your friends), "Am I really a writer? Am I really an artist? Chances are, you are. The counterfeit innovator is wildly self-confident. The real one is scared to death." (Steven Pressfield, The Art of War)
I absolutely love this quote about reading and having a fulfilling life. Books can provide amazing adventures that we would otherwise be unable to experience. - "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.
