My mathematics is simple. One plus one = one. Your problem is in that you like to add. With me: one minus one = one. With you: it’s zero. Here lies the only difference.
— Dejan Stojanović, Mathematics from The Shape
Are you more alike your mother or father?
i am a perfect blend between the two of them. i have my mother’s full lips and eyebrows, my father’s straight nose, cheekbones and thin hair, my mother’s posture and hands, my father’s metabolism and long limps, my mother’s empathy, delicacy of feeling and sensitivity, and my father’s stubborn intellect, egocentrism and forceful personality.
We travel for romance, we travel for architecture, and we travel to be lost.
— Ray Bradbury (in an interview with Rob Couteau)
My painting is not violent, it’s life that is violent. Even within the most beautiful landscape, in the trees, under the leaves, the insects are eating each other; violence is a part of life. We are born with a scream; we come into life with a scream and maybe love is a mosquito net between the fear of living and the fear of death.
— Francis Bacon
