“Hope” is the thing with feathers - That perches in the soul - And sings the tune without the words - And never stops - at all..."

“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”

Lilla Watson

"The joy in every successful metamorphosis conforms with the intellect’s age-old energetic need to liberate itself from the deceptive and boring paradise of fixed memories and to investigate a new, incomparably expansive areas of experience, in which the boundaries between the so-called inner world and the outer world become increasingly blurred and will probably one day disappear entirely."

Max Ernst
