The Dance of Life


There will be no more pictures of interiors, of people reading and women knitting. There will be pictures of real people who breathed, suffered, felt, loved – I will paint a series of such pictures. People should understand the significance, the power of it. They should remove their hats like they do in Church.

– Edvard Munch



An equal Music


Music, such music, is a sufficient gift. Why ask for happiness; why hope not to grieve? It is enough, it is to be blessed enough, to live from day to day and to hear such music-not too much, or the soul could not sustain it-from time to time.

― Vikram Seth, An Equal Music
