I like a view but I like to sit with my back turned to it.
-Gertrude Stein

There is no absolute point of view from which real and ideal can be finally separated and labelled.
-T. S. Eliot

As a means of contrast with the sublime, the grotesque is, in our view, the richest source that nature can offer.
-Victor Hugo

  2. No I like to see the view, sit in it, immerse in it, even if its ugly.

  3. I do not think that I could turn my back on a great view. I love to see beautiful views and they are truly worth the look.

  4. Lovely artwork. I also love the quotes.

  5. You always have an interesting point of view that sparks our curiosity

  6. Sometimes, it's best to focus on the view outside, lest the one inside consume you. I like the Hugo quote too. He speaks of his gentleman of Notre Dame, no doubt.
