a line from a poem

"Yet Hope again elastic springs,

Unconquered, though she fell;

Still buoyant are her golden wings,

Still strong to bear us well."

- Charlotte Brontë


"We only have this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand—and melting like a snowflake." - Francis Bacon

"though separate, they are undoubtedly linked. the nations of the world do not exist individually, but as a single international group. whether that is as a union or as discordant factions is up to them. flags are the face of countries, states, and communities--nations rally behind them; they are the lifeblood of a people's identity and pride. i used many of them to represent a host of diverse nations, and while they are boxed in their own affairs with clear, dark lines, only together do they create a unified image."
