Hands calm us, feed us, and scratch our backs. They intimidate, bless, encourage, and stop us. They soothe and caress.
They draw our attention to the good and the bad, often suggesting exuberance or fear.
“In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can inspire.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by.”
“Jump into the middle of things, get your hands dirty, fall flat on your face and then reach for the stars.”
“Our hands often reveal what we really think but do not say.
They can show a range of feelings and emotions from confusion and frustration
to joy, understanding, love, and compassion.”
