It looks well enough on the page, but never well enough.Basil Bunting
What is the worst of woes that wait on age? What stamps the wrinkle deeper on the brow? To view each loved one blotted from life's page, And be alone on earth, as I am now.Rochdale
Art, it seems to me, should simplify. That, indeed, is very nearly the whole of the higher artistic process; finding what conventions of form and what detail one can do without and yet preserve the spirit of the whole — so that all that one has suppressed and cut away is there to the reader's consciousness as much as if it were in type on the page.willa cather
My responsibility as an artist is to turn up at the page or the piano or the microphone. The rest is up to God.nick cave
