|About:||"We believe in the glory of passion. We believe in the inspiration of emotion. We believe in the holiness of love. Now some in the world without have been asking as to our faith, and mostly we find that we have no answer for them. Scoffers there be, to whom we need not reply, and foolish ones to whom our words would convey no meaning. For what are words? Symbols of kindred comprehended conceptions, and like makes appeal to like." - George Cecil Ives|
"Some of us were born to live in a state of constant flux: the guardians, the lonely sentinels who carry the rare burden of seeing the simple truths. We are difficult to deal with and impossible to understand, even by our fellow guardians, but perhaps we add something to the world that outweighs the inconvenience of our instability, even if we never fully depart the more beautiful worlds housed in our imaginings." ~ falconite
"We are beauty;
We are of the old ways.
We are writers and we speak freely, we have no fear of what others may say. There is no competition. For we are concerned with only us, and our progress. Our movement into understanding.
We speak of words and the subtle control they bear over us.
We are the original salon
We are the enlightened ones." ~ cannibalbeets
