The Problem with Communication... by 

Two prisoners whose cells adjoin communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but is also their means of communication. It is the same with us and God. Every separation is a link.

Simone Weil

Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.

Ansel Adams

Wealth and speed are what the world admires, what each pursues. Railways, express mails, steamships and every possible facility for communications are the achievement in which the civilized world view and revels, only to languish in mediocrity by that very fact. Indeed, the effect of this diffusion is to spread the culture of the mediocre.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Banality is a symptom of non-communication. Men hide behind their cliches.

Eugene Ionesco

Hours of solitude, hours of creation, hours of meditation. Solitude and meditation gave me an awareness, a perspective which I have never lost: that of solidarity with the rest of mankind. Since that time I have always proclaimed that poetry is communication, in the exact sense of that word.

Vicente Aleixandre

Our appearance is a powerful communication tool, sending messages to every sighted person. Everyone is highly influenced by the visual impression of a person they are meeting for the first time

Catherine Bell

and just to throw in one I love from many years:
To assure that you will never experience failure:
don’t take a risk, don’t attempt anything new, don’t expand on your ideas, don’t set goals.

Catherine Pulsifer; from her book:
Failure Is A Golden Opportunity

I am artist always becoming…
Endless ideas pull me forward towards endless creation.

    Linaji- have completely enjoyed this presentation- from the extraordinary image to the quotes you share with us…for me that last line is the clincher…Failure Is A Golden Opportunity This has been so enriching!

  • today I had the opportunity to talk with my best friend who moved away, she started me many moons ago with some work by the people I like to listen to. But for me this quote has only been proven in hind sight and there has alot of hindsight these past years. I don’t think I could have learned any other way and for this society it was called deep dark failure. Thanks so much Rosie and so good to see you!
