Man In The Golden Helmet - Rembrant

What I would like to see is the 'I' that knows me when I know that I know that I know.

Arcade wrote: John William Waterhouse's "The Lady of Shalott" (1888) is the most beautiful painting I've ever seen. Like Brenna said about the Caravaggio painting, seeing this in person is an extraordinary experience. If you happen to be in London at some point, stop by the Tate Britain and check it out. The depth of detail and color is genuinely breathtaking, and it conveys an indescribable level of emotion.


Oh I LOVE that one. I love pre raphelite work, Waterhouse in particular!



Walking, stumbling on these shadowfeet

Part of the seduction of most religions is the idea that if you just say the right things and believe really hard, your salvation will be at hand.

With Jediism. No one is coming to save you. You have to get off your ass and do it yourself - Me

"The Scholar Immortal"

“Eyes closed, he hears an inner music; he is lost in thoughts and questions— His spirit rides to the eight corners of the universe, his mind a thousand miles away. And then the inner voice grows clearer as objects becomes defined. and he pours forth the essence of words, savouring their sweetness. He drifts in a heavenly lake, he dives to the depths of seas. And he brings up living words like fishes hooked in their gills, leaping from the deep; And beauty is brought down like a bird on an arrowstring shot from passing clouds... He sees past and present commingle; he sees the whole Four Seas in the single blink of an eye.“

- Lu Chi (Wen Fu: The Art of Writing - 261 A.D.)
