The patterns of the regular five-pointed star and pentagon have inspired and energized civilization for millennia...
A happy and safe 4th of July to you and yours from the RetroCollage team!
Today marks the 125th anniversary of the birth of Juan Gris, Cubist co-originator of collage and found-object art.
While Art of RetroCollage has focused on collage, it is also a blog in itself with measurable indicators. Recently Google did another PR update, and our blog went from PR0 to PR3. We show our appreciation to our readers with new artwork called "The Star of Gratitude."
“The stars are the jewels of the night, and perchance surpass anything which day has to show.” – Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
Between two worlds life hovers like a star, twixt night and morn, upon the horizon’s verge. -- Lord Byron, English poet (1788-1824)
No star is ever lost we once have seen, We always may be what we might have been. -- Adelaide Anne Procter (1825-1864), English poet, philanthropist, and feminist.
Ideals are like stars: you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them you reach your destiny. Carl Schurz (1829-1906, German-American revolutionary, soldier, statesman, reformer, and journalist)
“Obstacles cannot crush me. Every obstacle yields to stern resolve. He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind.”
“No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed to an uncharted land or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.”
