I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino
"In a face, look for the main light and the main shadow; the rest will come naturally — it's often not important. And then you must cultivate your memory, because Nature will only provide you with references. Nature is like a warden in a lunatic asylum. It stops you from becoming banal."
— Edouard Manet, French painter, died April 30, 1883
