“We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race… poetry, beauty, romance, love… these are what we stay alive for.” 

“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. So medicine, law, business, engineering… these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love… these are what we stay alive for.”

 

― Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

“People have a hard time with this feeling of impermanence, of doing something that seems like it has no real purpose –
which really is all art on some level.”

 

“But I am fully bought into the idea that there’s a much bigger thing occurring and the art plays a much bigger role than humanity, or at least our society, gives it credit for.”

 

Andres Amador, land artist

“The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”
