“When I meet people, I always imagine what world hides inside them.” — Ashley Schumacher

“I’m amazed when someone sees the sculpture inside a rock while the rest of us just see a rock. I say ‘hell yes’ to the architects who imagine the spaces we will one day live in. And a round of applause for the stylist who sees what hair to cut to make me look respectable for a couple of weeks. I bow low and fast in the direction of those who paint amazing things on the ceilings of chapels, make life-changing movies, or deliver a stand-up routine that recognizes the humor in the mundane. What all those artists have in common is that they point out things that were always there, always dotting the sky. Now we can take it in and live what we missed.” — Ben Folds
