Henry Miller, Asleep & Awake

A fascinating 1975 interview with the American writer, painter, and philosopher:

"Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such."

"Our whole theory of education is based on the absurd notion that we must learn to swim on land before tackling the water."

"I see myself forever and ever as the ridiculous man, the lonely soul, the wanderer, the restless frustrated artist,
the man in love with love, always in search of the absolute, always seeking the unattainable."

"Paint what you like and die happy."
