Art And Artists Quotes
Showing: 21 - 30 Art And Artists Quotes of 183
True artistic renewal does not mean being stripped of fetters. It means moving into new fetters.
Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.
What is art? A violet. Is that all? An artistic style is a living entity, a continuous process of invention. It can never be imposed from without; born of the profoundest tendencies within a society, its direction is to a certain extent unpredictable, in much the same way as the eventual configuration of a tree's branches.
Art must take reality by surprise. It takes those moments which are for us merely a moment, plus a moment, plus another moment, and arbitrarily transforms them into a special series of moments held together by a major emotion.
Art is in love with luck, and luck with art.
True art selects and paraphrases, but seldom gives a verbatim translation.
There is no comfort in adversity More sweet than Art affords. The studious mind Poising in meditation, there is fixed, And sails beyond its troubles unperceiving.
The business of every art is to bring something into existence, and the practice of an art involves the study of how to bring into existence something which is capable of having such an existence and has its efficient cause in the maker and not in itself.
All art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique. All artists, if they are to survive, are forced, at last, to tell the whole story, to vomit the anguish up.
Art distills sensation and embodies it with enhanced meaning in memorable form-or else it is not art.

Love Quote
Few people know what they mean when they say, "I love you." ... Well, what does the word love mean? It means total interest. I think the reason very few people really fall in love with anyone is they're not willing to pay the price. The price is you have to adjust yourself to them.
Friendship Quote
Your friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
Love Quote
I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me.
Trust Quote
You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself.
