On Exploring an Expression

The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity. (Walt Whitman)

The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation. (Michael Jackson)

What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist. (Salman Rushdie)

Literature is the expression of a feeling of deprivation, a recourse against a sense of something missing. But the contrary is also true: language is what makes us human. It is a recourse against the meaningless noise and silence of nature and history. (Octavio Paz)

Mathematics as an expression of the human mind reflects the active will, the contemplative reason, and the desire for aesthetic perfection. Its basic elements are logic and intuition, analysis and construction, generality and individuality. (Richard Courant)

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things. (T. S. Eliot)

Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution. (Ansel Adams)
