Quotable Quote

"When the artist is alive in any person, whatever his kind of work may be, he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressive creature. He becomes interesting to other people. He disturbs, upsets, enlightens, and opens ways for a better understanding. Where those who are not artists are trying to close the book, he opens it and shows there are still more pages possible."

- Robert Henri
The Art Spirit, 1923


  1. I can remember feeling that way when I used to design software. I think that in a sense we all have an inner artist waiting to emerge.

  2. Laura,

    Great quote. I love it. Glad you saw God's country.

    Blessings be upon you at your present task. Don't be a stanger.

  3. Thanks again Bill for the hospitality! I'll be back around in a few month's time I'd imagine. Hopefully this time I won't be so tired that I'm sleep talking during lunch. ;-)

    Maybe we can all go check out Fusco's music next time. I'd like that!

    I'll see you around the blogosphere in the meantime!


  4. Enjoy the journey and we will see you soon. You have been on my mind constantly the last two days.
