My husband has had this little book, Affirmations For Artists by Eric Maisel, for a number of years and often chooses quotes from it to put on the outside of the door to the Printmaking studio up at the university. These three thoughts I found in different sections caught my eye this evening. I think I will go to sleep now with these little gems tucked quietly under my pillow.
"Where is your Self to be found? Always in the deepest enchantment that you have experienced." -- Hugo Von Hofmannsthal
"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a passing shape, from a spider's web." -- Pablo Picasso
"Fascination is a key to productivity; it unites experiences; it is even its own reward." -- Erving Polster
