“If you think you are in control, you are just not going fast enough’
— Mario Andretti
“Most people fail to recognize opportunity, because it comes dressed in an overall and looks like work”
— Thomas Edison
“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said: “faster horses”
— Henry Ford“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”— Theodore Roosevelt
“The portrait matters because life is fleeting, and we will not be here forever. Loose a loved one, as I have in the last 24 hours, and the value of a photograph becomes all the more evident. We are passing through time, all of us, unstoppably. We will change our times and be changed by them. The person I am now is not the person I will become, and when I get to the end of the time allotted to me, it will feel to me, and my loved ones, I hope, to have been far too short. The portrait cannot undo this, not slow it down. But it creates milestones for us, way markers that say, “This is who I am and who I have been.”All we have in life, really, are people and moments. The portrait captures both simultaneously and tells a story about the characters in our lives. It shows a person in a time and a place in which they will never be again; it stops the clock and says, “Look at this person: she matters. This moment matters.” And whether the portrait is serious or the brief result of a cheesecake grin, we’re a little closer to seeing the soul.”
— David duChemin, People Pictures, by Chris Orwig, Foreword.
