Random Quote

By speech first, but far more by writing, man has been able to put something of himself beyond death. In tradition and in books an integral part of the individual persists, for it can influence the minds and actions of other people in different places and at different times: a row of black marks on a page can move a man to tears, though the bones of him that wrote it are long ago crumbled to dust.
-- Julian Huxley

What Comes Forth

 

I downloaded Beethoven's Symphonies 1 - 9 today, and the first is this: Symphony No. 1, Op. 21 in C Major \ Adagio molto: Allegro con brio. So I listen to this first song and I realize that it's used in a Looney Tunes cartoon with Bugs Bunny. Hard to take it seriously after that.

Chuck Jones, the animator for Looney Tunes, said this:

"A small child once said to me: 'You don't draw Bugs Bunny, you draw pictures of Bugs Bunny.'"

He thought that to be very profound because it showed him the reality of his work for others.

I find that to be somewhat like this quote from Picasso:

There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun.
