Friday Arts Quotes

"Every real creation of art is independent, more powerful than the artist himself and returns to the Divine through its manifestation. It is one with man only in this, that it bears testimony to the mediation of the Divine in him." - Ludwig von Beethoven

I personally would like to bring a tortoise onto the stage, turn it into a racehorse, then into a hat, a song, a dragoon and a fountain of water. One can dare anything in the theatre and it is the place where one dares the least. -Eugene Ionesco

Boy do I love that Beethoven quote. Independent and more powerful. That's a cool way to start a Sunday.

And Ionesco doesn't know how right he is about the theatre being the place one dares the least. That's becoming more and more so.

The Beethoven quote always inspires me to keep at it, but the Ionesco one reminds me the keep pushing boundaries and not be scared of going out on a limb.
