Quote of the Day

H. G. Wells
Beauty in art is often nothing but ugliness subdued.
Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.
Why do we go around acting as though everything was friendship and reliability when basically everything everywhere is full of sudden hate and ugliness?

Marcia Gay Harden

I seated ugliness on my knee, and almost immediately grew tired of it.
We cannot know the whole truth, which belongs to God alone, but our task nevertheless is to seek to know what is true. And if we offend gravely enough against what we know to be true, as by failing badly enough to deal affectionately and responsibly with our land and our neighbors, truth will retaliate with ugliness, poverty, and disease.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
