Poetry of Nature

 Poetry is not an opinion expressed.
It is a song that rises from a bleeding wound
or a smiling mouth. 

Kahlil Gibran

Red Gurnard Balığı

We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity; more than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be  violent and all will be lost.

Charlie Chaplin’s 
The Great Dictator

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.

There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see.

The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.

Leonardo Da Vinci

Gouldian Finch

I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.
Edgar Allan Poe

Poecilotheria metallica, a species of Tarantula.

The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently. 
The Dawn

 Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason & your judgment wage war against your passion and your appetite. 

 Kahlil Gibran

Indian Bullfrog 

You'll never find a rainbow if you're looking down”
 There are more valid facts and details in works of art than there are in history books.

Charlie Chaplin

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.

Henry Miller

My mother said to me, “If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.” Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso.

 Pablo Picasso

 The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape...
 Pablo Picasso

 Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don't start measuring her limbs.
 You mustn't expect me to repeat myself. My past doesn't interest me. I would rather copy others than copy myself. In that way I should at least be giving them something new. I love discovering things.

Pablo Picasso
