Wise Words

.

“Soon silence will have passed into legend.  Man has turned his back on silence.  Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation.  Tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding and trilling bolster his ego.”

— Jean Arp

    It’s interesting to note that Jean Arp died in 1966. The noise wasn’t half as bad then as it is now. I don’t know when he said this, but as an artist he was obviously tuned to society’s impending uproar.
