“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it”. Pablo Picasso
Pablo Ruiz y Picasso, also known as Pablo Picasso (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973), was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France. As one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), and Guernica (1937), a portrayal of the German bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.

“Love is the greatest refreshment in life”. Pablo Picasso
“When we meet someone and fall in love, we have a sense that the whole universe is on our side. And yet if something goes wrong, there is nothing left! How is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanish so quickly? Life moves very fast. It rushes from heaven to hell in a matter of seconds”. Paulo Coelho
“… What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love”.
Dostoevsky, Fyodor M. (1999) . The Brothers Karamazov
If I can find the words in my mind
The words could explain but the words won’t come
If you can see what you mean to me
My words should explain but my words won’t come
And oh, how hard I try to tell you I love you
But something holds me back when I try to tell you
