Constantin Brancusi Quote


Picture Quote:



When you see a fish you don't think of its scales, do you? You think of its speed, its floating, flashing body seen through the water... If I made fins and eyes and scales, I would arrest its movement, give a pattern or shape of reality. I want just the flash of its spirit.  - Constantin Brancusi

The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.
