“No artist tolerates reality.” ~Nietzsche

Interesting quote, I don’t entirely agree, but I like where it is coming from. Everyone, besides the insane, has to tolerate reality for the most part, its called being conscious… Reality is full of amazing things anyway. I think however, that artists and other creative people tap into the unrealistic more often. In fact, usually in an attempt to make it a reality…

Anyway, it was the first quote I came across that I liked and was as long as I needed. Haha.

Enjoy! _

    Oh my… how I adore this feeling..
    I think for me this is about setting for what seems a ‘reality’
    and come to understand more
    how we
    create it.
    if one doesn’t like the reality in front of ones self
    create a new one.
    vs regretting the one that seems so very powerful.
    Artists already know how to do this.

  • True, I think we constantly adjust out ‘reality’ to suit our needs, I guess it’s just important not to remove yourself from it too much. ;)
