Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
Sculptures in Verona’s Museum
We did not just do a Romeo and Juliet pilgrimage while we were in Verona last year. We also visited one of their museums. And to think, we just did our own day tour of the city. Here are a few photographs of sculptures found in Verona’s museum.
“Inside you there’s an artist you don’t know about… say yes quickly, if you know, if you’ve known it from before the beginning of the universe.”
“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.”
― William Faulkner
“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
― Henry Ward Beecher
“Myth must be kept alive. The people who can keep it alive are the artists of one kind or another.”
― Joseph Campbell
“This is the time for every artist in every genre to do what he or she does loudly and consistently. It doesn’t matter to me what your position is. You’ve got to keep asserting the complexity and the originality of life, and the multiplicity of it, and the facets of it. This is about being a complex human being in the world, not about finding a villain. This is no time for anything else than the best that you’ve got.”
― Toni Morrison
