Circle of Influence

Circle of Influence is a chart of artistic, scientific, and philosophical debts through time. Created by Michelle Legro of Lapham’s Quarterly, Maria Popova of Brain Pickings & Illustrator Wendy MacNaughton as part of Longshot magazine’s Debt issue.

I should have this hanging on my wall – a good motivation to look up some of the not so obvious names! Who is Marie Curie? In the mean time, here are some quotes that grabbed my attention:

“I do not seek I find.” — Pablo Picasso

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
Sylvia Plath

“I like to remember things my own way. How I remembered them, not necessarily the way they happened.”
David Lynch (Lost Highway)

“Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.”
Sigmund Freud
