"Art is the desire
of a man to express himself,
to record the reactions of his personality
to the world he lives in."
~ Amy Lowell
One of the things I love about reading is how it allows me to view the world from another's perspective. Some authors seem to see things nearly the same way I do; others see things very differently.
Either way, the author expresses him- or herself through the words he/she choses and how those words are put together. Similarly, a painter expresses him- or herself through the colors and the lines he/she uses. The artist may not deliberately be trying to show his/her unique personality through the art, but it always comes through anyway....
