My struggle has been to return painting to the tangible object, which is like returning the personality to touching and feeling the world around it, to offset the tendency to vagueness and abstraction. To remind people of practical activity, to suggest the sense and not to escape from the senses.
Low lights signal to our senses that the workday may be over and it's time for sleep, making it hard for an audience to pay careful attention. When we stand behind a big wooden podium, it can feel as if there's a shield between us and the audience.
John P. Kotter
Taste is one of the five senses, and the man who tells us with priggish pride that he does not care what he eats is merely boasting of his sad deficiency: he might as well be proud of being deaf or blind, or, owing to a perpetual cold in the head, of being devoid of the sense of smell.
E. F. Benson
There are three schoolmasters for everybody that will employ them - the senses, intelligent companions, and books.
Henry Ward Beecher
I never knew whether to pity or congratulate a man on coming to his senses.
William Makepeace Thackeray
One senses that all the Bolsheviks, even those who ended up as cold-blooded autocrats, had been on a journey from idealism to something else, and didn't notice - to mix periods - when the Rubicon was crossed.
I don't believe civilization can do a lot more than educate a person's senses.
He whom the gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
These days, our senses are bombarded with aggression. We are constantly confronted with global images of unending, escalating war and violence.
Margaret J. Wheatley
We evolved to move and to learn with all our five senses!
But the newest research is showing that many properties of the brain are genetically organized, and don't depend on information coming in from the senses.
Every second of every day, our senses bring in way too much data than we can possibly process in our brains.
I learned a lot from Arthur Rimbaud. People talk about how he wanted to be a seer and do that through the derangement of the senses. What they forget was that he also advocated, sternly and austerely, that one must be able to go through all that - and then articulate it.
I think God gave us senses of humor, and we should use them.
My fam is just a regular family. But all of them have great senses of humor.
I love a nice cooking show. It's as aesthetically pleasing as any other thing that tempts the senses, I suppose.
Time dissolves in summer anyway: days are long, weekends longer. Hours get all thin and watery when you are lost in the book you'd never otherwise have time to read. Senses are sharper - something about the moist air and bright light and fruit in season - and so memories stir and startle.
When all is said and done, we exist only in relation to the world, and our senses evolved as scouts who bridge that divide and provide volumes of information, warnings and rewards.
The further we distance ourselves from the spell of the present, explored by our senses, the harder it will be to understand and protect nature's precarious balance, let alone the balance of our own human nature.
Inspiration in Science may have to do with ideas, but not in Art. In art it is in the senses that are instinctively responsive to the medium of expression.
Our senses are indeed our doors and windows on this world, in a very real sense the key to the unlocking of meaning and the wellspring of creativity.
Fear of error which everything recalls to me at every moment of the flight of my ideas, this mania for control, makes men prefer reason's imagination to the imagination of the senses. And yet it is always the imagination alone which is at work.
All observers not laboring under hallucinations of the senses are agreed, or can be made to agree, about facts of sensible experience, through evidence toward which the intellect is merely passive, and over which the individual will and character have no control.
I think being tortured as a virtue is a kind of antiquated sense of what it is to be an artist. It comes out of that Symbolist idea, back to Rimbaud and all that disordering of the senses and all of that being some exalted state. When I've been that way, I've always been less exalted than I would have liked.
The senses are the organs by which man places himself in connexion with exterior objects.
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
There is always a point when one senses one's lack of skill, the doubt.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
