Kind visitor, you have reached the art website of Arjun Jain.
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.
The voice of conscience makes no mistakes. It want, not the fulfilment of the animal self, but its denial or sacrifice.
A Christian who does not know where he goes (John 3:8), or what is given to him by God (John 3:34), does not know his life’s real purpose. -Fyodor Strakhov
As our self-interest diminishes, our anxieties disappear, and then comes quiet and firm joy, which always diffuses us with a good spiritual disposition and a clear conscience. Every good deed helps to kindle this feeling of joy within us. The egoist feels lonely, surrounded by threatening and alien events; all his desires are sunk in his own concerns. A kind person lives in a world of beneficent events, whose goodness matches his own. -Arthur Schopenhauer
A person who lives only for the concerns of his body may become lost in the labyrinth of an animal and sensual life, while the soul will always find truth; it will find the way. -Lucy Mallory
The voice of your conscience can always be singled out above the noise of your other wishes, because it always wants something seemingly useless, seemingly senseless, seemingly incomprehensible, but at the same time something actually beautiful and good, which can be achieved only through effort.
