Quote of the Day

The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.
I was elated, ecstatic and extremely surprised that we were successful.
My nominee for Best Picture of the year - maybe the best picture ever, because it's essentially made up of and is an ecstatic love letter to all other movies - is Christian Marclay's endlessly enticing must-see masterpiece 'The Clock.'
Poetry is the language we speak in the most terrifying or ecstatic passages of our lives. But the very word poetry scares people. They think of their grade school teachers reciting 'Hiawatha' and they groan.

But I still read Shaw on a regular basis. What I love is the nakedness of the polemic and the irresistible good humour.

I want people to be ecstatic but to cry at the same time.
Ecstatic absurdity: it's the confrontation with meaninglessness.

I started producing work with an ecstatic addiction.

Life has always taken place in a tumult without apparent cohesion, but it only finds its grandeur and its reality in ecstasy and in ecstatic love.
Pleasure is a shadow, wealth is vanity, and power a pageant; but knowledge is ecstatic in enjoyment, perennial in frame, unlimited in space and indefinite in duration.
