''You must not think I am forgetful in my long silences.''

C.S. Lewis / Letters of C.S. Lewis, to his father April 1925

''We learn to look at [the earth] not in the flat as pictures to be seen, but in depth as things to be burrowed into. It is not merely a question of lines and colours but of smells, sounds and tastes as well: I often wonder if professional artists don’t lose something of the real love of earth by seeing it in eye sensations exclusively?''
