I’m in Heaven

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

I love quotations, many of you know that. I just accidentally found out that the Wikipedia organization has a place called Wikiquote. It has a few dozen languages up and running right now. The English version is here:

http://en.wikiquote.org

It has a section on proverbs which interests me a lot. And then there are sections on quotes from specific people (Helen Keller, Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and more)… and on subjects, such as Art. Here’s a bit from the art page:

  • Chagall, Marc
  • “All colours are the friends of their neighbours and the lovers of their opposites.”
  • Audette, Derek R.
  • “The entire ‘my art is better than your art’ thing really gets under my skin. The fact of the matter is: Your art IS better than my art… at being what it is. So what? It just so happens that my art is better than your art, at being what it is.”
  • Klee, Paul
  • “Art does not reproduce the visible; it makes things visible.”
