Sketches from my soul.

"Si è soli con ciò che si ama"

Degas: “It isn’t ideas I’m short of… I’ve got too many”

Mallàrmé : ” But, my friend, you can’t make a poem with ideas. … You make it with words”.

—   from “Degas, Manet, Morisot” by Paul Valéry

“Tu prova ad avere un mondo nel cuore e non saperlo esprimere con le parole”

spucy:

Piove su le tue ciglia nere

sì che par tu pianga

ma di piacere; non bianca

ma quasi fatta virente,

par da scorza tu esca.

Rain falls on your black eyelashes
So that you seem to weep
But from pleasure; not white
But made almost green,
You seem to emerge from bark.
Gustav Klimt, Study for “Lasciviousness” from ‘Beethoven Frieze’, 1901

“You must aim high, not in what you are going to do at some future date, but in what you are going to make yourself do to-day. Otherwise, working is just a waste of time”

—   Edgar Degas

“Drawing is not the same as form; it is a way of seeing form”
