These two quotes couldn’t disagree more. The first says beauty, if things aren’t beautiful, I’ll go find beauty, it’s all I care about, but it’s not everywhere, it’s not reality always, reality isn’t marvelous always.
The second says, shit is beautiful, you just have to remember it’s beautiful.
I’m with Cage: reality is the best, because it’s the only. On the other hand, I love to write fiction, and though fiction is like a plant grown out of the manure or dirt of reality, it is it’s own made-up marvelous thing. So I guess I’m with Anais. ~ ed.
I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I cannot transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.” ~ Anaïs Nin
When I find something to be not beautiful, I ask myself why and very shortly I will realize that there is no reason. ~ John Cage
