I've decided to cut back my number of blogs (my time and presence on line has been reduced some lately anyway), so I'm transferring a few posts from my Metanoist blog here and deleting it. Just some quotes that had caught my fancy. I may cut the Peanut Road blog as well...will see.

It is impossible to experience Deja Vu for the first time ~Les Barker

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. ~ Scott Adams

By far the greatest thing is to be a master of metaphor. It is the one thing that cannot be learned from others. It is a sign of genius, for a good metaphor implies an intuitive perception of similarity among dissimilars. ~Aristotle

There's no such thing as a realistic actor since it's all make believe. ~Bruce Campbell

"You take art as a means not as an end. This is a strict theology, but it's unusual to find an agnostic believing it." ~from Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh
