Sunday Quotes: The Color White

“White…is not the mere absence of color; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black…God paints in many colors; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white.”

-G.K. Chesterton

Sunday Quotes: Art Does Not Create

“Art does not draw from itself alone what it gives to things; it spreads over them a secret which it has first seized by surprise in them, in their invisible substance or in their endless exchanges and correspondences… it transforms, it moves about, it brings together, it transfigures; it does not create.” 

Jacques Maritain
