Life is more important than art; that's what makes art important.
James Baldwin (1924 - 1987)

The most dangerous creation of any society is that man who has nothing to lose.
Everything in life depends on how that life accepts its limits.
Money, it turned out, was exactly like sex, you thought of nothing else if you didn't have it and thought of other things if you did.
Nothing is more desirable than to be released from an affliction, but nothing is more frightening than to be divested of a crutch.
Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced.
All art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique. All artists, if they are to survive, are forced, at last, to tell the whole story; to vomit the anguish up.
The purpose of art is to lay bare the questions which have been hidden by the answers.
Most of us are about as eager to be changed as we were to be born, and go through our changes in a similar state of shock.
Be careful what you set your heart upon, for it will surely be yours.
