A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness.
John Keats

William Michael Harnett - Still life Violin and Music

Music...gives wings to the mind, a soul to the universe, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, a life to everything.

Basket Of Fruit - Carvaggio

Corner of the Garden at Montgeron - Claude Monet

If you possess a library and a garden, you have everything you need. (translation from the French) 
Si vous possedez une bibliotheque et un jardin, vous avez tout ce qu'il vous faut.
- Cicero
