- Pablo Picasso -

Why Anonymity is More Artistically Rewarding than Fame

"I wanted to confront the great things. The three years I spent living in the desert were probably the high point in my life. You see things you would never see unless you're alone." At such moments suddenly there's a relationship with reality. "It's so powerful -- and it also makes you realize it's such a miracle that you're alive." { read more }
