“Paint it black. Work only with black materials today. Try working on a black surface for a real challenge.” from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

“There’s a lovely Hasidic story of a rabbi who always told his people that if they studied the Torah, it would put Scripture on their hearts. One of them asked, “Why on our hearts, and not in them?” The rabbi answered, “Only God can put Scripture inside. But reading sacred text can put it on your heart, and then when your hearts break, the holy words will fall inside.”  ―Anne Lamott

“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” ―Kahlil Gibran

“And suddenly solitude fell across his heart like a dusty reflection. ” ―Patrick Süskind
