I have always been fascinated by words - poems, stories, quotations, everything that transforms simple words into something much much more. The essence of art - creating something from nothing, like magic! Yesterday I came across this one and it blew me away!


Know then thyself, presume not God to scan;
The proper study of Mankind is Man.

--- Alexander Pope

I love finding new words too. Today I found "Ancora Imparo"...I still learn, written by Michaelangelo.
I'll have to use than in a poem...;)

Yeah... this is simple yet so powerful. Especially coming from a genius like Michelangelo (one of my life's heroes incidentally :-p)
