This is the section of my blog where I am keeping track of quotes that speak to me, either as artist and/or art educator... Some I find, some have been suggested by others. I hope they will inspire you as well!

(Note: If you have a great quote about being creative or about learning or perseverance or identity issues or anything else you feel might be thought provoking, please post it in the comment section under the latest posting, and I will transfer it here, for safe-keeping and sharing.)

There was a great quote I heard the other day from Churchill: When you’re going through hell, just keep going.” I just love it. Why stop?

---Daniel Radcliffe ("Out" magazine, interview)

"If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing."

---Marc Chagall (1887-1985), French painter

"If you understand the strands of your creative DNA, you begin to see how they mutate into common threads in your work. You begin to see the story that you're trying to tell; why you do the things you do (both positive and self-destructive); where you are strong and where you are weak (which prevents a lot of false starts); and how you see the world and function on it."

---Twyla TharpAmerican dancer, director, and choreographer

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

---Douglas Adams, Writer
