SPECIAL PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT FROM eunoiagallerie
In our opinion Western society has overly focused its collective graspings towards universal and timeless truth and beauty on stories revolving around a plausibly gay Nazarene carpenter. To remedy the resultant malaise, eunoiagallerie is pleased to announce the Tithe For Art Movement as well as the awarding of the first Planetary Art Colloquium to be held in Montreal from June 18 to September 9, 2020. Montreal 2020 will be the first summer-long celebration of human advances since the announcement of the Tithe For Art Movement as well as the opportunity for those lucky enough to be in Montreal to experience 12 weeks in a city invaded by the most diverse artistic voices from around the world.

Perhaps the greatest lovers of God and man have been confirmed atheists, confirmed criminals. The lunatics of love, so to say.
Henry Miller - Nexus
Power don't come from a badge, or a gun. Power comes from lying, lying big and getting the whole damn world to play along with you. Once you got everybody agreeing with what they know in their hearts ain't true, you got 'em by the balls.
Senator Ethan Roark Sr. - Frank Miller's Sin City
There is a dying mancuspia chick on the first step. We lift it, we put it in the basket with straw, we want to know what it is dying of but it dies the obscure death of an animal. And the locks are intact, there is no way to know how this mancuspia got out, if its death was its escape or if its escape was its death.
Julio Cortazar - Cefalea (Bestiario 1951)
Art...is a productive state that is truly reasoned, while it's contrary non-art (atechnia) is a productive state that is falsely reasoned...

But in accordance with the primitive arrangement of things, the most trifling causes produce the greatest events, and the grandest undertakings end in the most insignificant results.
Nikolai Gogol - Old Fashioned Farmers
No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream.

Kinky Friedman - The Mile-High Club (opening line)
He was always being called one of the most eminent philosophers of his time but he knew that nobody could really define what special features his philosophy had, or what 'eminent' meant or what 'his time' exactly was, or who were the other worthies. When writers in foreign countries were called his disciples he never could find in their writings anything remotely akin to the style or temper of thought which, without his sanction, critics had assigned to him, so that he finally began regarding himself (robust rude Krug) as an illusion or rather as a shareholder in an illusion which was highly appreciated by a great number of cultured people (with a generous sprinkling of semi-cultured ones.)

Il est dangereux d'avoir raison dans des choses ou des hommes accredites ont tort.
"The open steppe, a clear day, and a swift horse under you," responded the officer after a little thought, "and a falcon on your wrist to start up hares." "Nay," responded the Khan,"to crush your enemies, to see them fall at your feet to take their horses and goods and hear the lamentation of their women. That is best."
Genghis Khan The Emperor of All Men - Harold Lamb (1928)
Th' newspaper does ivrything f'r us. It runs th' polis foorce an' th' banks, commands th' milishy, conthrols th' ligislachure, baptizes th' young, marries th' foolish, comforts th' afflicted, afflicts th' comfortable, buries th' dead an' roasts thim aftherward.
Finley Peter Dunne - Observations by Mr. Dooley (Newspaper Publicity)(1902)
They sicken of the calm, who knew the storm.
The human qualities can
be expressed in one word: hypocrisy. We praise those who say the right, but wish wrong...mock those who say wrong, but want the right.
Lars Von Trier
In the world of the dreamer there was solitude: all the exaltations and joys came in the moment of preparation for living. They took place in solitude. But with action came anxiety, and the sense of insuperable effort made to match the dream, and with it came weariness, discouragement, and the flight into solitude again. And then in solitude, in the opium den of remembrance, the possibility of pleasure again.
Anais Nin - Children of the Albatross (1947)
A paranoid man is a man who knows a little about what's going on.

The free spirit stands amid the cosmos with a joyous and thrusting fatalism - he does not negate anymore.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw - Maxims For Revolutionists (1903)
Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.
Anonymous ancient proverb, wrongly attributed to Euripides
Quotations are useful in periods of ignorance or obscurantist beliefs.
Guy Debord - Society of the Spectacle
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
The best actors in the world are those who feel the most and show the least.
Employers in me sense a denial of their values.
