One of my favorite art quotes is from Pauline Kael, the American film critic who was known for her witty movie reviews:
“Art doesn’t come in measured quantities: it’s got to be too much or it’s not enough.”
I always think of this quote when I see flowers blooming in the spring. They don’t hold back. It’s all about extravagance, like my roses, which have been over-the-top lately.
May we all remember to be too much today.
