Ideally a painter (and, generally, an artist) should not become conscious of his insights: without taking the detour through his reflective processes, and incomprehensibly to himself, all his progress should enter so swiftly into the work that he is unable to recognize them in the moment of transition.

The day you bury him is a day of chores and crowds, of hands false or true to be shaken, of the immediate cares of mourning.

Only then will you cry out because of him who is leaving and whom you cannot detain. — Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I see people detained for simple INS violations. — Sibel Edmonds

It is unacceptable that immigrants, including children, are shackled and detained in deplorable conditions. And it is unacceptable that already this year immigrants have died by the dozens in the California desert or in other parts of the Southwest. — Roger Mahony
