Heir To Every Possibility

Louise Nevelson portrait

“Art is the essence of awareness.”

“I don’t demand that all work be a masterpiece. What I am doing is the right thing for me – that is what I am and this is living. It reflects me and I reflect it.”

“I seek truth. What I seek is anything that will work for me. I’ll use a lie if it works, and that [becomes] the truth.”

“What we call reality is an agreement that people have arrived at to make life more livable.”

“We must create our own world.”

“No matter how individual we humans are, we are a composite of everything we are aware of. We are a mirror of our times.”

“I have never liked the middle ground – the most boring place in the world.”

“Greatness breaks laws.”

“Humans really are heir to every possibility within themselves, and it is only up to us to admit it and accept it. You see, you can buy the whole world and you are empty, but when you create the whole world, you are full.”
