I found these quotations in Leonard Sweet's Soul Salsa. I like them and thought I'd pass them along.
“A true artist always puts something of his time in his art, and also his soul.” French sculptor Auguste Rodin
“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if possible, to speak a few reasonable words.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Heav’n above is softer blue
Earth around is sweeter green;
Something lives in every hue
Christless eyes have never seen.” from George Wade Robinson hymn, I am His and He is Mine
“He who has eyes sees something in everything.” Roy Lichtenberg
