Knowledge and wisdom can be best understood together. Knowledge is learning, the power of the mind to understand and describe the universe. Wisdom is knowing how to apply knowledge-or how not to apply it. Knowledge is knowing what to say; wisdom is knowing whether or not to say it. Knowledge gives answers; wisdom asks questions. Knowledge can be taught; wisdom grows out of experience, out of making mistakes.


People often shout out at me in the street 'cheer up, it may never happen.' You just want to shout back 'f*** off, it already has.' - Hugh Laurie

"A loveless world is a dead world, and always there comes an hour when one is weary of prisons, of one's work, and of devotion to duty, and all one craves is a loved face, the warmth and wonder of a loving heart." - Albert Camus

For my friend Lorenzo


Lorenzo Quinn

"I imagine the perfect kiss, an eternal kiss. One that can be recounted through the years like the rings in a tree trunk."

"People often ask me where I get my inspiration from and how does it take me to create a sculpture. My answer is usually the being: inspiration comes from everyday life, from something I read, from conversations with people, family mile stones. Essentially, anything that creates a stir of emotions in me; as far as how long it takes me to create a sculpture, my answer is: as long as I've been alive. This means that a sculpture is a part of who I am and the way I think, based on my past experiences. At times I may know what to say but it may take me years to recreate how I want to express it to the world.

I believe that art should be more than a merely decorative object: something to match the colour of your sofa or walls. It should have a meaning, transmit emotions, as well as being aesthetically well balanced.

All About Me

I am a Paganimagefrom West Bromwich who is looking for her purpose in life. I've walked down many roads and now all I wish to do is to dance to my own drumbeat. I am loyal and faithful and treat others how I want to be treated myself. imageMy heart is always open but I hate being betrayed. Always ready to give advice to those who need it. I may look plain but there is a lot more to my capabilities than most people think. image

Hugs and Blessed Be

What I try to achieve each day

Being true to my beliefs and morals and accepting of my emotions and limitations. image

How I stay relatively sane

Reading, writing poetry and stories, art history, conspiracy theories, alternative beliefs. I enjoy knitting (don't laugh!).I love Rock music and am avid supporter of my friend, sculptor Lorenzo Quinn image

Words of Wisdom

Sometimes we let other people treat us wrongly because we want to be loved and accepted so badly that we'd do anything for it. It hurts when you know that no matter how much you try, how much you want it, they can't love or accept you as you are. Then you hate all that time you wasted trying to please them and wonder what about you is so awful that they couldn't at least pretend to love you.


"When you love someone...truly love them, friend or lover, you lay your heart open to them. You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else, and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt-you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest and most painfully on your heart and soul. And when they do strike, it's crippling-like having your heart carved out. It leaves you naked and exposed, wondering what you did to make them want to hurt you so badly when all you did was love them. What is so wrong with you that no one can keep faith with you? That no one can love you? To have it happen once is bad enough...but to have it repeated? Who in their right mind would not be terrified of that?"


Cuts and bruises always heal, but words spoken in anger are most often permanent. They don't damage the body, they destroy the spirit.

Love is so pure and innocent when given, especially unconditionally. Why can't those who receive it see it for the beautiful gift it is? Why must they use it as a tool to hurt the one who gave it?

It's easy to look at people and make quick judgments about there present and their pasts, but you'd be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often than not, it's lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the very foundation of their soul.
