Monday Morning Quotes

The Monday Morning Quotes began in 1998; first thing each week I sent a quote to a small group of friends and allies as an inspiration for thought or even dialogue. Sometime in 1999, as the list of recipients grew, I started adding my own thoughts. By 2001, there were hundreds of people receiving the quote and my reflections each week. I will continue to add to the archive here from both directions-–newest ones and older ones. Dialogue is still welcome . . .

Quote #628 - Publicly Private #PubliclyPrivate

21 Jul, 2014

"Avarice over-rates the difference between poverty and riches; ambition, that between a private station and a public station; vain-glory, that between obscurity and extensive reputation."

Adam Smith

"Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.... Poetry is the one place where people can speak their original human mind. It is the outlet for people to say in public what they know in private."

Allan Ginsberg

"All human beings have three lives: public, private, and secret."

Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Art makes the private public,
makes the secret public,
with shape and form,
image, color, and harmony.

Writers, composers, painters, sculptors
can do their work in private,
then expose it to the world--
expose themselves to the world, yet not--
in shape, form, image, color, harmony.

Actors, singers, dancers, comedians
are private in public,
publicly private,
exposed--in character or not--
but in the moment,
for all to experience with them
their fiercest pain,
their wildest pleasure,
all their deepest passions
and vulnerabilities.

Artists make the private public,
make the secret public,
even if it is not their secret.
