Art With Quotations
Great intellectuals have been able to describe their ideas, philosophy, beliefs or claims in a succinct form within a stage play or a poem.
These quotations have fascinated me & my interest continues.
In the 1700's the situation on Earth was summed up by Voltaire who said "If there is life on other planets, then Earth must be the Universe's insane asylum".
My humble quote about our planet is not as humorous:
"There is a large void in Earth's atmosphere where Compassion once resided".
In the painting below I have manipulated the original sketch to convey the meaning of my quote.
For me, these concise quotes say it far better than I. Quotes are easily remembered & can motivate one to reconsider “things” in a little more depth.
A line from Shakespeare's King Lear sharpened my thoughts on continuing to make more art when I retired.
"tis our fast intent to shake all cares and business from our age, conferring them on younger strengths
while we unburdened crawl toward death"
I have merged some of my favourites with an artwork of mine that I consider suitable & hope you enjoy & maybe benefit from them as much as I do.
