God made everything out of nothing, but the nothingness shows through.
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.
—Carl Sagan in Cosmos
Everyone is as God has made him, and oftentimes a great deal worse.
If the landscape reveals one certainty, it is that the extravagant gesture is the very stuff of creation. After the one extravagant gesture of creation in the first place, the universe has continued to deal exclusively in extravagances, flinging intricacies and colossi down aeons of emptiness. . . . The whole show has been on fire from the word go.
All good things which exist are the fruits of originality.
Art is making something out of nothing and selling it.
An artist is a dreamer consenting to dream of the actual world.
You don't take a photograph, you make it.
God creates men, but they choose each other.
