A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on art, sculpture, eye, seeing, rhythm, marble, and greek

I sometimes wonder if the hand is not more sensitive to the beauties of sculpture than the eye. I should think the wonderful rhythmical flow of lines and curves could be more subtly felt than seen. Be this as it may, I know that I can feel the heart- throbs of the ancient Greeks in their marble gods and goddesses

Helen Keller (1880 - 1968)

A Quote by Walter Russell on soul, light, eye, form, transparency, and mind

"Most sculptors make the mistake“, he said, “of thinking of eyes as form and they therefore make them as spherical surfaces. Eyes are not forms, they are transparent, and what one really sees is the light of the soul in them – and that is what I try to give them".

Walter Russell

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on earth, eye, and nature

A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature.  It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.
