I feel that art has something to do with the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos. A stillness which characterizes prayer, too, and the eye of the storm. I think that art has something to do with an arrest of attention in the midst of distraction.
–Saul Bellow

The paradise for which we often long is the imagination and its projections; it represents artificial perfection. While it is the equal and opposite of confusion and disappointment, it would take the latter to imagine the former. Paradise always includes the heartache that came, that had to come, before that imagined perfection.
