Japanese Intrigue: There’s a lot of thought in art. People get to talk about important things. There’s a lot of sex, you know, in art. There’s a lot of naked women and men, and there’s intrigue, there’s fakery. It’s a real microcosm of the larger world. By Steve Martin.
Life on a Plate: We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times… and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen. By Barack Obama
City of Dreams: We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort. By Jesse Owens
Full Moon: I promise to be an excellent husband, but give me a wife who, like the moon, will not appear every day in my sky. By Anton Chekhov
Pontius Pilate: Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people; and behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him. By Pontius Pilate
Real artist: I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit. By John Steinbeck
