Man Ray ~ On Inspiration
“Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask 'how', while others of a more curious nature will ask 'why'. Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information.”
― Man Ray

Paul Cezanne ~ Feelings & Art
An art which isn't based on feeling isn't an art at all... feeling is the principle, the beginning and the end; craft, objective, technique - all these are in the middle.

Voltaire ~ Reading And Dancing
“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”
Albert Einstein ~ On Imagination
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Albert Einstein

Dance till the stars come down from the rafters
Dance, Dance, Dance till you drop.
~W.H. Auden

"I love to dance, it does not matter if it is a Tango, a Foxtrot, a Samba or a Jive, just like to move my body on the rhythm of music…I just can not sit still. Other people get their kick out of shopping, playing Foxy Bingo, or singing. But as for me, dancing is my thing. The dance floor has always been my comfort zone.
Dancing is a natural movement of the body and has always been popular! Personally I love the music of the roaring twenties, the swinging music, dances, dresses and names like Heavenly Sugar and Shining Pearl.
Otto Dix, "Metropolis," 1927-28.
