"I think," Tehanu said in her soft, strange voice, "that when I die, I can breathe back the breath that made me live. I can give back to the world all that I didn't do. All that I might have been and couldn't be. All the choices I didn't make. All the things I lost and spent and wasted. I can give them back to the world. To the lives that haven't been lived yet. That will be my gift back to the world that gave me the life I did live, the love i loved, the breath I breathed."
"The Other Wind"
by Ursula K. LeGuin
"I think there are some things in life, intangible things that come to us from beyond ourselves, that are meant to be exercised and used as we're given them, with no stockpiling allowed. I think faith is like this, whether it's object is God or other people. Love too. Hope certainly. And creativity."
"What is so fragile that just saying it's name can break it?

"We must not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time."
T. S. Eliot
"I wish more people felt that photography was an adventure the same as life itself and felt that their individual feelings are worth expressing. To me, that makes photography more exciting."
"Light is my inspiration, my paint and brush. It is as vital as the model herself. Profoundly significant, it caresses the essential superlative curves and lines. Light I acknowledge as the energy upon which all life on this planet depends."
"No matter what camera you use, it is not the camera but your artistic eye who makes the photograph."
