Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Quote of the Day

In art, progress does not consist in extension, but in the knowledge of limits…Nobility grows out of contained emotion. Emotion should not be rendered by an excited trembling; it can neither be added on nor be imitated. It is the seed, the work is the flower. I like the rule that corrects the emotion.

Georges Braque, “Reflections on Painting”
