Portrait of human knowledge CABELLUT

CABELLUT


He who never desired it He has not kissed life He has not walked barefoot On the carpet of anguish Where feet sink And you lose the value of effort There are no footprints that follow you That animal cry That elevates you It pulls you out of nothing It spits you into the center of life It arranges a meeting for you with existence It does not abandon you On any old street corner It paints a portrait of you in a naked field Where the colours are docile And the cries are mute

Lita Cabellut

Portrait of Human knowledge CABELLUT 2012


“I only have the intention to touch you for a moment.�

Lita Cabellut


“Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!�

Anne Frank


“To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves.” Federico García Lorca


“Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers. You can fill your life up with ideas and still go home lonely. All you really have that really matters are feelings. That's what music is to me.� Janis Joplin


“I haven’t understood a bar of music in my life, but I have felt it.”

Igor Stravinsky


“My feet are dogs.” Rudolf Nureyev


“You can hold yourself back from the sufferings of the world, that is something you are free to do and it accords with your nature, but perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could avoid.�

Franz Kafka


“My feet will want to walk to where you are sleeping but I shall go on living.� Pablo Neruda


“There comes a time when suddenly you realize that laughter is something you remember and that you were the one laughing.�

Marlene Dietrich


“ If women would only understand that many men are not half so interested in a well-ordered house as they are in a well-groomed wife, things might be different.� Louise Weber known as La Goulue


“People who have given us their complete confidence believe that they have a right to ours. The inference is false, a gift confers no rights.� Friedrich Nietzsche


“I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling.� Frida Kahlo


“Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.”

Marie Curie


“To be bourgeois is to have a certain type of materialism. You have to think of what that means. It means everything that destroys dreams, everything that destroys anything attractive. That’s what being bourgeois means for me. It means security. It’s a type of mediocrity of the spirit. It’s everything I dislike.”

Jaques Brel


“For me, sleeping is a waste of time. I’m afraid to sleep. It’s a form of death.”

Edith Piaf


“Shadows cannot see themselves in the mirror of the sun.”

Eva Perón


“The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” Albert Einstein


“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.� Mother Teresa


“Dreams are often most profound when they seem the most crazy.” Sigmund Freud


Lita Cabellut

“The imagination is a sketch of captured reality.”

“When we try to form a totality of the image, we lose the tenderness of the detail.”

Lita Cabellut


“...My birth name doesn’t mean anything. I am Grock. The first is the name of the dark years...”

Grock


“Everybody has to feel superior to somebody,” she said. “But it’s customary to present a little proof before you take the privilege.”

Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s


“Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.”

Coco Chanel


“I would like to be Maria, but there is La Callas who demands that I carry myself with her dignity.� Maria Callas


“The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.� Nikola Tesla


“If you understood everything I say, you’d be me!”

Miles Davis


“We must seek the music of the people”

Camarón de la Isla


“Vision changes while it observes.” James Ensor


“I never hurt nobody but myself and that’s nobody’s business but my own”

Billie Holiday


“The basic mistake of many scientific endeavors in the present is that they believe they are presenting pure experience, while in reality they are reading out the concepts that they put into their experience in the first place.� Rudolf Steiner


“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.” Marilyn Monroe


“Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.�

Charlie Chaplin


“Too much sanity may be madness and the maddest of all, to see life as it is and not as it should be.�

Cervantes, Don Quixote


“I swear that I gave everything.”

Carmen Amaya


“It paints a portrait of you in a naked field. Where the colours are docile, and the cries are mute.�

Lita Cabellut


If my brushes Were not able to speak If my feet Were not able to take a step forward or back To gain perspective on what I see If in my head Confusion and doubt were not reigning If I don’t cry I laugh If I was not dazzled by white And moved by indigo What loneliness What loneliness I would have with myself
