Statue of Liberty - Full Mandala
“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.”
~ Thomas Jefferson


I took this picture of the Statue of Liberty in 2011 on a trip to New York.
I’m using the original in an art contest, but I had to save this before I kept going.


On this one, mandala is set to the highest setting.

Cheers and best!

“My dear,

In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.
I realized, through it all, that…
In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy.

For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me,
there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.

Truly yours,
Albert Camus”
“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”
“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
“Au milieu de l'hiver, j'ai découvert en moi un invincible été.”
“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of.
    You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”
“Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.”
“People hasten to judge in order not to be judged themselves.”
“Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.”
“Real generosity towards the future lies in giving all to the present.”
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
“Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth.”
“In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion."
“The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.”
“Always go too far, because that's where you'll find the truth”
“It is the job of thinking people not to be on the side of the executioners.”
“Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.”


    I've enjoyed reading quotes since I got the internet around 15 years ago. Albert Camus is one of my favorite authors of all time. I've studied several of his works in the process of learning French. His language is often beautiful, poetic, and frank with accuracy.

The artists on DA have inspired me since I first found the internet.

"I get lost in the beauty of everything I see.
The World ain't half as bad as they paint it to be."

I work on environmental projects in China and the US.
Maybe one day I will come to your city!

Cheers and best!
Ashton

Cheers!

I'll be looking out!

I'd like to ask you about publishing through kindle later.
Is it okay if I pm you when I'm ready?

Best!

Sure, though I can tell you right now that all of what I learned about it was from YouTube videos xD But you're welcome to still ask, as I know directly questioning someone about things can be helpful ^^
