JULES BRASSAI ~ ON THE EXTRAORDINARY

in Art & the Unconscious Mind by
art

“I don’t invent anything. I imagine everything… most of the time, I have drawn my images from the daily life around me. I think that it is by capturing reality in the humblest, most sincere, most everyday way I can, that I can penetrate to the extraordinary.”

Jules Brassai

MILAN KUNDERA ~ CAN WE KNOW THE PRESENT?

in The words that make sense... brilliant writings by writers... by
milan-kundera

“Man can only be certain about the present moment. But is that quite true either? Can he really know the present? Is he in a position to make any judgment about it? Certainly not. For how can a person with no knowledge of the future understand the meaning of the present? If we do not know what future the present is leading us toward, how can we say whether this present is good or bad, whether it deserves our concurrence, or our suspicion, or our hatred?”
― Milan Kundera, Ignorance
