"Artists have a vested interest in our believing in the flash of revelation, the so-called inspiration… shining down from heavens as a ray of grace. In reality, the imagination of the good artist or thinker produces continuously good, mediocre or bad things, but his judgment, trained and sharpened to a fine point, rejects, selects, connects… All great artists and thinkers are great workers, indefatigable not only in inventing, but also in rejecting, sifting, transforming, ordering.”

The book and the ideas it presents inspire all of us, even those who would say they are not creative. Too bad about the fabricated information from Bob Dylan - the book is still worth reading.

great book, worth reading over the summer! The movie was alright....book was awsome!
Water for Elephant by Sara Gruen is definitely worth reading. It's an easy read with just enough floral language to capture the moment. I really enjoyed the in'n out of Jacob's reality and his memories. Try it!
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen Good Movie; Great Book
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen Book club scheduled March 2014
Water for Elephants /Sara Gruen. I really didn't excpect a lot from this book, which I recieved as a present, but one night I couldn't sleep and I pulled it out of the shelf. And, boy, is this a good book. It's fast-paced and exhilarating. And the circus-world (especially the darker sides of it) is really fascinating. Very recommendable.
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen… one of my favorite books thanks to a great friend!

Love you, Terry Gross. Wish you were my friend. Except when you interviewed LeBron James and tried to get all sportsy with him. Oh Lord, it was apparent that you didn't know anything about basketball. Anyway, this book has only interviews with artists, musicians and authors, so no awkward moments here (except during the combative interview with Gene Simmons from KISS, but Terry clearly wins in the end).

Love in the Time of Cholera, by Gabriel García Marquez.
On my must read list. “To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else's heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter..."
Love in the Time of Cholera. Gabriel Garcia Marquez. One of my favourite books of all time, amazing to sympathise so strongly across historical and cultural boundaries about the waxing and waning of romance.
Love in the Time of Cholera (1988) by Gabriel García Márquez, original title: El amor en los tiempos del cólera (Spanish, 1985)

"A mask has but one expression, frozen and eternal, yet it is always and ever the essential expression, and to hide one’s telltale flesh behind the external skeleton of the mask is to display the universal identity of the inner being in place of the outer identity that is transitory and corrupt. The freedom of the masked is not the vulgar political freedom of the successful revolutionary, but the magical freedom of the Divine, beyond politics and beyond success. A mask, any mask, whether horn...
