"If this collection has a theme, it is that of impermanence. Coping with change, temporality and uncertainty is one of our great struggles. We are deluded if we feel our lives are built on rock solid foundations. Despite this we strive to create some little temporary paradise for ourselves and, quite surprisingly, for others." - Dave Morgan

"Change is the metaphysics of our age." - Richard Kostelanetz

"We are not wholly bad or good / 
Who live our lives under Milk Wood." - Dylan Thomas

"Man at his best does not seek to be well-known but seeks to be worth knowing." - Confucius
