"To replace a map (or a part of the map) that isn't serving you very well, there has to be an interim period where the old map goes into temporary chaos, breaks down, and is then replaced by a new map, one that more accurately reflects reality and more resourcefully allows you to be happy, creative and spiritually connected to other people." - http://www.edgenews.com/issues/2003/08/harris.html

"Some such as David Hockney or Cornell or whoever, can be quite articulate about art theory, theories of approach, what art "is"and "is not"--others such as Picasso didn't discuss their work in any kind of articulate, analytical manner. For all I know Picasso may have had theories about art, but like Van Gogh he just churned out work and followed his gut as far as what he was interested in working on at any given time. " - Chad Henry
"Life rewards effort exponentially (no matter how small the effort, nor how challenging the odds)." - The Universe

. It's not about how much wealthy nations can give, so much as how much less they can take." - Vandana Shiva
