To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.
Giorgio de Chirico

We are people with all the hopes, dreams, passions, and faults of everyone else. Eighty percent of us are born into families with no history of dwarfism.
Billy Barty

Each has its lesson; for our dreams in sooth, come they in shape of demons, gods, or elves, are allegories with deep hearts of truth that tell us solemn secrets of ourselves.
Henry Timrod

If there were dreams to sell, what would you buy?

I don't have any interest in being "immortal". I'm very happy in being a mortal, and live a happy human life .

West Gardener, I think he's speaking of the work of Art, not of the human who created it.

I would not buy a dream for sale, I create my own, thank you very much :>

lilo, I reread the quote, and you're right. It talks about a work of art. So, I'll just say that, I don't care if anything I create is immortal.
