Nigel Tufnel: "The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and..."
Marty DiBergi: "Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?"
Nigel Tufnel: "Exactly."
Marty DiBergi: "Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?"
Nigel Tufnel: "Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?"
Marty DiBergi: "I don't know."
Nigel Tufnel: "Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?"
Marty DiBergi: "Put it up to eleven."
Nigel Tufnel: "Eleven. Exactly. One louder."
Marty DiBergi: "Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?"
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] "These go to eleven."
The movie This is Spinal Tap has a rating on the Internet Movie Database that is eight out of eleven. Most movies can only go to ten. This one can go one greater.

Art is man's expression of his joy in labor.

Art is not a study of positive reality, it is the seeking for ideal truth.
Art is not a thing; it is a way.
Art is science made clear.
Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.
Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.
Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
Art is the proper task of life.
Art is the right hand of Nature. The latter has only given us being, the former has made us men.

They arenít any such thing as good friends or bad friends.
Maybe there are just friends.
People who stand by you when you're hurt and who helped you feel not so lonely.
Maybe there are worth being scared for and hoping for and living for.
Maybe worth dying for too.
If that what has to be.
No bad friends.
Only people you want.
Need to be with.
People who build their houses in your heart."
ó Stephen King - IT
Lots of quotes about art...
"Because art is magic, and not all magic is white."
Age vol 1...
A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age.
A man growing old becomes a child again.
Advice in old age is foolish; for what can be more absurd than to increase our provisions for the road the nearer we approach to our journey's end.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
After thirty, a body has a mind of its own.
Age considers; youth ventures.
Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone.
Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.
Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
Age is how we determine how valuable you are.
Age is not a particularly interesting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough.
