March 22

From Quotes
When we understand that man is the only animal who must create meaning, who must open a wedge into neutral nature, we already understand the essence of love. Love is the problem of an animal who must find life, create a dialogue with nature in order to experience his own being.

Cowardice asks the question, "Is it safe?" Expediency asks the question, "Is it politic?" And Vanity comes along and asks the question, "Is it popular?"

I have spent more than half a lifetime trying to express the tragic moment. ~ Marcel Marceau

  • 2 because tragedy isn't easily explained. The expression of "sad clown", hence crying inside, laughing outside, best signifies this persona, beautifully painted. Zarbon 05:24, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

To communicate through silence is a link between the thoughts of man. ~ Marcel Marceau

  • 2 because anyone can hold a conversation, but to understand through movement is grandiose. Personally, the way in which dolphins are able to communicate, similarly, and moreso amazingly through a telekinetic manner, if you will, has always been interesting to me. Zarbon 05:24, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
