Timeless Emily Carr

Quotations for Life

Emily Carr’s quest to convey the very essence of life through both paint and words took her on a truly unconventional journey. As her advantaged youth crumbled into decades of dealing head-on with economic hardship, strained relationships and artistic despair, she never, never gave up. Instead, she grew.

This collection of Carr’s astute observations covers the spectrum of her vibrant experiences with art, writing, nature, spirituality, life, and death. Author Laurie Carter pairs each carefully selected quotation with notes on its source and context, and includes a brief biography to whet the appetite of those not yet familiar with the extraordinary life of one of Canada’s most passionate talents.

Timeless Emily Carr: Quotations for Life offers an enduring gift of inspiration and meaning, perfect for the creative in every one of us.
