And if she has brought him to this,
what has he brought her to?"

"It's all in how you arrange the thing ...
the careful balance of the design
is the motion."

-- Andrew Wyeth

"Writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade
just as painting does, or music.
If you are born knowing them, fine.
If not, learn them.
Then rearrange the rules to suit yourself."
--Truman Capote

“Bit by bit, putting it together...
Piece by piece, only way to make a work of art.
Every moment makes a contribution,
Every little detail plays a part.
Having just the vision's no solution,
Everything depends on execution,
Putting it together, that's what counts.”

-- Stephen Sondheim, Sunday in the Park With George
