“Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.”
Amy Lowell is a kindred spirit. She was born in 1874, into a well-known and respectable family. She had two brothers: Percival Lowell, who became a prominent astronomer, and Abbott Lawrence Lowell, who ended up as a Harvard president. College was a forbidden fruit – no place for a woman. Not to be thwarted, she turned to books. In fact, she was an obsessive book collector; hence a kindred spirit. Can you imagine what she would do
with a Kobo, Kindle etc? Amy Lowell’s life is amazing, full of creativity, poetry and inspiration. What better quote to start my photo blog. Just this once – I have modified the pronouns.
Art is the desire of a woman to express herself, to record the reactions of her personality to the world she lives in!
