I’m not mad

Salvador Dali

Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.

Have no fear of perfection-you’ll never reach it. Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them. On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly.

The first man to compare the cheeks of a young woman to a rose was a poet; the first to repeat it was an idiot.

The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.

At the age of six years I wanted to be a chef. At the age of seven I wanted to be Napoleon. My ambitions have continued to grow at the same rate ever since. Every morning when I awake, the greatest of joys is mine: that of being Salvador Dali. There are some days when I think I’m going to die from an overdose of satisfaction.

I do not paint a portrait to look like the subject, rather does the person grow to look like his portrait.

Many people do not reach their eighties because they spend too much time in their forties.

The only difference between me and a madman is that I am not mad.

Right? Wrong? I’m Proud of You! Q

 

 

What has your child done that was technically “wrong” but you were proud of him for doing it?  Quora 

We were at a birthday party for 2 yr old boys at MacDonalds. The room was filled with Type A parents, successful lawyers, accountants, teachers.. and their offspring. The birthday boy was far across the playroom opening gifts.

My little man puts his head down, eyes the toys, and makes a beeline across the room and grabs a new toy from the birthday boy!

I elbowed my husband and whispered out of the corner of my mouth: “This is embarrassing but when he’s an adult, he will always go after, and get, exactly what he wants”.

Today he lives and works in Paris as an English Copywriter.
