"We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive."
"I also had to learn in taking pictures how to develop a personal vision; how to express my own feelings about it, and in order to do that, I had to get in touch with my own feelings and…through photography, through the discipline of the frame, I learned about the world, it became the way I discovered the world, and it also became the way in which I discovered myself."
"If I limit myself to knowledge that I consider true beyond doubt, I minimize the risk of error but I maximize, at the same time, the risk of missing out on what may be the subtlest, most important and most rewarding things in life."
— E.F. Schumacher
