art

A Quote by Thomas Merton on meditation, meditating, awareness, writing, art, life, and waiting

Learn how to meditate on paper. Drawing and writing are forms of meditation. Learn how to contemplate works of art. Learn how to pray in the streets or in the country. Know how to meditate not only when you have a book in your hand but when you are waiting for a bus or riding in a train.

Thomas Merton (1915 - 1968)

A Quote by Albert Einstein on mysteriousness, mystery, art, science, wonder, and spirituality

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by Franz Marc on art, letting go, surrender, truth, and life

Art is nothing but the expression of our dream; the more we surrender to it the closer we get to the inner truth of things, our dream-life, the true life that scorns questions and does not see them.

Franz Marc
