Words that come from the heart are never spoken, they get caught in the throat and can only be read in ones’s eyes

Contradiction is the essential move or method for art. In music it’s counterpoint. In landscape painting it’s the contrast between the foreground, which is always dark, and the background, which is light. And in writing, it’s death and life. The imminent arrival of death—what greater thing to set life in relief against?… You put contradictory things next to each other, and in the intermingling of them you get something like the mystery of human experience.
Wisdom on writing from Paul Harding, adding to history’s finest definitions of art and echoing Joss Whedon’s case for the vibrancy of contradiction. Complement with the collected wisdom of great writers.  (via explore-blog)
