As a body everyone is single, as a soul never. ---Hermann Hesse
---Hermann Hesse quote.

I became an electrician after high school. But I always had this thing in me to write. But it was always
a little shameful. To say you were a poet was saying you were kind of crazy, and I carried that around
for a long time. I still kind of carry that. And I think it might be true, actually. ---Nick Flynn

As our collective experience with the crisis of meaning matures, the interface with art becomes increasingly
intellectual. The modern-day craft renaissance further shifts the academic art conversation away from
the kinesthetic, thusly buttressing the 4th wall between art object and viewer. ---Jeffers and Premo
---Jeffers and Premo quote.

It takes nearly as much ability to know how to profit by good advice
as to know how to act for one's self. ---Francois de La Rochefoucauld
------Francois de La Rochefoucauld quote.

Freedom from the desire for an answer is essential to
the understanding of a problem. ---Jiddu Krishnamurti
