You may read the About and Manifesto pages to know more about my work. Above, you can see my most recent posts; below, is the thought of the day from Tolstoy’s Calendar of Wisdom, from when the website was last updated; and on the left, are links to my own artwork.


Only those who know their weaknesses can be tolerant of the weaknesses of their neighbours.

My children, if someone abuses you with words, do not pay much attention; be quiet at your prayer, and ask for your friends to settle the dispute and find peace between you and those who have abused you. -Talmud

The man who cannot forgive destroys a bridge which he will have to cross, because every person needs forgiveness. -Edward Herbert

Almost always, when we look deep into our souls, we can find there the same sins which we blame in others. If we do not find a particular sin in our soul, then we should look more closely, and we will find even worse sins there.

A deep river is not troubled if you throw a stone into it. If a religious person is hurt by criticism, then he is not a river but a shallow pool. Forgive others, and then you will receive forgiveness. -Muslih-ud-din Saadi

If we can put ourselves in the place of other people, we lessen our pride.
