A Quote by William Faulkner

I was at the Jepson Center for the Arts in Savannah, GA viewing an exhibit of works by William Christenberry (one of my favorite photographers and artists) when I saw this quote on the wall.

"The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life." -William Faulkner, 1956
