Never let it be said that my passions fade. Here are some more cushions for your delectation, some old, some new.

Take care and keep laughing!


Dorothy Parker

By the time you swear you’re his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying —
Lady,  make a note of this:
One of you is lying.

The Collected Dorothy Parker

I feel ever so strongly that an artist must be nourished by his passions and his despairs. These things alter an artist whether for the good or the better or the worse. It must alter him. The feelings of desperation and unhappiness are more useful to an artist than the feeling of contentment, because desperation and unhappiness stretch your whole sensibility.

Artist Francis Bacon [1909-1992], whose work encompassed Surrealism, Cubism and Expressionism, quoted in John Gruen’s The Artist Observed: 28 interviews with contemporary artists.
