Top 10 instagram posts

A few months ago I started doing this Instagram project where every photo I uploaded I would accompany it with an inspirational quote from whomever I was reading/getting inspiration from at the time. I love this project because it forces me to think about my photographs in a different way and lets me give the viewer an experience that pure visuals can't do. Here are my 10 favorite image-quotes all put together. If you're not following me on Instagram click the link here

"The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day." David Foster Wallace

"Plants exist in the weather and light rays that surround them - waving in the wind, shimmering in the sunlight. I am always puzzling over how to draw such things." -Hayao Miyazaki

"What strikes me is the fact that in our society art has become something which is only related to objects, and not to individuals or to life" -Michel Foucault

"What the really great artists do is they're entirely themselves, they've got their own vision, they have their own way of fracturing reality, and if it's authentic and true, you will feel it in your nerve endings." -David Foster Wallace

"To be a surrealist means barring from your mind all remembrance of what you have seen, and always being on the lookout for what has never been seen." -Rene Magritte

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others" -Mohandas Karamchand Ghandi

"Life is art, a miracle for all to believe. I must tell you that you lived beautifully." nujabes song luv (sic) part 5 ft. Shing02 written by Shing02

"Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster... For when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you -Friedrich Nietzche

"When you start creating opinion, and you start creating difference of opinion, you're doing something. People are actually sitting down and critiquing. A lot of the stuff people hate, they really don't. They only look at the outer shell. They don't really get into it." -Lupe Fiasco

"Next time you are having a bad day remember that it is amazing that you are alive at all, much less a member of a self-aware species living at the height of human technological process." -Hank Green
