Here at our Vancouver office we know that we’ve been very, very lucky this winter. The cherry blossoms have been out for at least a month and the daffodils are in full bloom – sure signs that spring is on its way. We hope that with the official first day of the season having already passed, the tides are turning for you as well, and the warmth and sunshine is making its way around the world. What better time to celebrate artistic renewal than during this period of new growth?
We hope that these quotes will help to inspire your creative resurgence this spring season.
It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.
Genius is the ability to renew one’s emotions in daily experience.
Mary Ann Brussat
Nature often holds up a mirror so we can see more clearly the ongoing processes of growth, renewal, and transformation in our lives.
You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.
Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”
Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.
You renew yourself every day. Sometimes you’re successful, sometimes you’re not, but it’s the average that counts.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
Great art picks up where nature ends.
