Art Work

"Between men of different studies and professions may be observed a constant reciprocation of reproaches. The collector of shells and stones derides the folly of him who pastes leaves and flowers upon paper pleases himself with colours that are perceptibly fading, and amasses with care what cannot be preserved. The hunter of insects stands amazed that any man can waste his short time upon lifeless matter, while many tribes of animals yet want their history. Every one is inclined not only to promote his own study, but to exclude all others from regard, and having heated his imagination with some favourite pursuit, wonders that the rest of mankind are not seized with the same passion." Samuel Johnson, Rambler (1751)
"A joyful life is an individual creation that
cannot be copied from a recipe."
"A person who forgoes the use of his symbolic skills is never really free." Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (1990)
"A hobby is only fun if you do not have time to do it." Leo Beenhakker.
