Success! It is about more than the money, more than the recognition… it is a deeper meaning than the external… it is inside you to reach your true potential!

“Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.”

— President Barack Obama

“We’ve gotten to the point where we think the camera can capture anything at all.” “Well, it can’t really. The camera can’t compete with painting at all. The paintings are much more vivid about the place than photographs are.”

David Hockney, “Modern Painters,” David Hockney, on his latest inspiration – Yorkshire, Into the Woods,” by: Marina Cashdan, April 2010, p. 66.
