Many times I enjoy the Sacredness of Silence when I create art or write. I discovered this post: The Sounds of Silence on the GROG blog. Although the article is targeted to writers, it can equally apply to artists. Here are a few of the quotes that I especially liked:
- "Without great solitude no serious work is possible.” ~ Picasso.
- “One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.” ~Carl Sandburg.
- "Be alone—that is the secret of invention: be alone, that is when ideas are born.”~Nikola Tesla
- "You need to hear what you're writing, and for that you need silence."~ Philip Pullman. (Artists, too, need to hear what they are creating).
