Females carry the marks, language and nuances of their culture more than the male. Anything that is desired or despised is always placed on the female body.

Most of our inspirations come to us when we are traveling or doing new things. When we shift our environments and our daily patterns, our brain begins to find ways to adapt. This process causes us to think more creatively.
People say to you, ‘you’ve changed’, or something like that, well, I hope, for the sake of God that you have changed, because I don’t want to be the same person all my life. I want to be growing, I want to be expanding. I want to be changing. Because animate things change, inanimate things don’t change. Dead things don’t change. And the heart should be alive, it should be changing, it should be moving, it should be growing, its knowledge should be expanding.

Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.
