Astonishing Art Of Loving quotations
There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.

The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
I grew up hearing everyone tell me 'God loves you'.
I would say big deal, God loves everybody. That don't make me special! That just proves that God ain't got no taste. And, I don't think He does. Thank God! Because He takes the junk of our lives and makes the most beautiful art.

I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.
When I got enough confidence, the stage was gone.

One of the things my career as an artist might say to young artists is: The things that are close to you are the things you can photograph the best. And unless you photograph what you love, you are not going to make good art.

Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving.
When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.
Never sound pompous. You always sound noble, noble. Absolute character of music is nobility. Even popular music can be noble, you see. If it's not noble, then it's not very good...
