Great art picks up where nature ends

"The habit of ignoring Nature is deeply implanted in our times. This attitude reminds me of people who never look you in the eye; I find them disturbing and always have to look away."

--Marc Chagall

You always share such words of
enlightment... whether it be in
your poems or qoutes.
I think I shall have to start
calling you
"The Enligthened One"
Thank you.

This is probably cultural. In Asia especially in the Philippines, not looking a person in the eye is a sign of respect and consideration for other people. It's probably from the idea that to read people's mind or emotions is rude. Like looking over the shoulder at what another person is reading.
