Happy birthday to Gustav Klimt. Today we celebrate his special day with a painting he began in 1917, but was left unfinished by his sudden death in 1918. This masterful portraitist had an incredible impact on painting with his intimate depictions of women and remarkable detailing. Has anything unfinished ever looked so good?Now on view: “Frauenbildnis (Portrait of a Woman),” 1917–18, by Gustav Klimt (On loan from The Lewis Collection)

"The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention."

"It’s okay to not like things about yourself. You do not have to think you’re beautiful all of the time. It’s even okay to have things about yourself that you want to change, within reason.
However, it is never okay not to love yourself. It is completely unacceptable to berate, abuse, or harm yourself. You are not perfect, and you do not need to be.
It is okay to not like yourself; it is never okay to hate yourself."
