Need your opinion

Hey guys :wave:

Hope you could help me a little bit! I want to create a poster for my portfolio which should include a nice quote or saying. 

here are some examples: 

Do you know any good, inspiring, creative, awesome or fun saying/quote? I don't want to use any run-of-the-mill-quote ;P
And it also shouldn't be too long or too short. 

Every thought is very appreciated!

Hope you are doing fine :hug:

I guess one could find thousands of quotes, it all depends on what you personally like. I know you've most likealy already thought of this, but I think it would be much better if you were to write your own quote - in a phrase, explaining your prime goals and views. :)

you're right…I just thought there are so many, maybe some of you know a really cool one ;P

my own quote? phew…

I haven't read anything on photography I really, really found fascinating as of yet, but you might draw some inspiration from the following:

photography, from Greek
φως + γράφειν,
"light" + "to write".
writing with light.

the roman rule
the one who says it cannot be done should never interrupt the one who is doing it


today is the last day of your life so far


like a snowflake
disappears while you re trying to decide what to do with it


freedom is when language dictates a grammar book
slavery is when a grammar book dictates language


culture is the name we give to a majority insanity
if it weren t for culture
there would be only one reason to wear clothes on a hot day

"Art is what makes life more interesting than art" from Robert Filliou is one of my favorite ;)
