~~~~~~~

The tough thing about following your heart is that people forget to metion that sometimes the heart takes you to places you shouldn’t be. Places that are scary as they are exciting and as dangerous as they are alluring. Sometimes your heart cannot take you to places that lead to happy endings. That’s not even the difficult part; the difficult part is when you follow your heart, you leave normal; you go into the unknown and once you do you can never go back. Anonymous quotes

The whole country was tied together by radio. We all experienced the same heroes and comedians and singers. They were giants.

~~~~~~~

The work of art may have a moral effect, but to demand moral purpose from the artist is to make him ruin his work.

~~~~~~~

The work of art must seize upon you, wrap you up in itself and carry you away. It is the means by which the artist conveys his passion. It is the current which he puts forth, which sweeps you along in his passion.

~~~~~~~

The writer, when he is also an artist, is someone who admits what others don’t dare reveal.

~~~~~~~

There are certain epochs in art when simplicity is audacious originality.

The real Brahms is nothing more than a sentimental voluptuary…. rather tiresomely addicted to dressing himself up as Handel or Beethoven and making a prolonged and intolerable noise.

~~~~~~~

The real essence of art turned out to be not something high up and far off – it was right inside my ordinary daily self — If a musician wants to become a finer artist, he must first become a finer person. Shinichi Suzuki quotes

~~~~~~~

The real questions are the ones that obtrude upon your consciousness whether you like it or not, the ones that make your mind start vibrating like a jackhammer, the ones that you ‘come to terms with’ only to discover that they are still there. The real questions refuse to be placated. They barge into your life at the times when it seems most important for them to stay away. They are the questions asked most frequently and answered most inadequately, the ones that reveal their true natures slowly, reluctantly, most often against your will. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

The refining influence is the study of art, which is the science of beauty; and I find that every man values every scrap of knowledge in art, every observation of his own in it, every hint he has caught from another. For the laws of beauty are the beauty of beauty, and give the mind the same or a higher joy than the sight of it gives the senses. The study of art is of high value to the growth of the intellect.

~~~~~~~

The refusal to rest content, the willingness to risk excess on behalf of one’s obsessions, is what distinguishes artists from entertainers, and what makes some artists adventurers on behalf of us all.

~~~~~~~

The rule in the art world is: you cater to the masses or you kowtow to the elite; you can’t have both.

~~~~~~~

The salt inside my body ruins everyone I come close to. My hands are barely holding up my head. Oh I’m so tired of looking at my feet and all the secrets that I keep. My heart is barely hanging by a thread. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed – it is a process of elimination.

~~~~~~~

The service you do for others is the rent you pay for the time you spend on earth. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me, there’s a truth in your heart that says you’ll never leave me, and the touch of your hand says you’ll catch me whevever I fall. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

The studio, a room to which the artist consigns himself for life, is naturally important, not only as workplace, but as a source of inspiration. And it usually manages, one way or another, to turn up in his product.

~~~~~~~

The study of art is a taste at once engrossing and unselfish, which may be indulged without effort, and yet has the power of exciting the deepest emotions;–a taste able to exercise and to gratify both the nobler and softer parts of our nature.

~~~~~~~

The study of art possesses this great and peculiar charm, that it is absolutely unconnected with the struggles and contests of ordinary life. By private interests, by political questions, men are deeply divide, and set at variance; but beyond and above all such party strifes, they are attracted and united by a taste for the beautiful in art.

~~~~~~~

The summit charms us, the steps to it do not; with the heights before our eyes, we like to linger in the plain. It is only a part of art that can be taught; but the artist needs the whole. He who is only half instructed speaks much and is always wrong; who knows it wholly is content with acting and speaks seldom or late.

The object of science is knowledge; the objects of art are works. In art, truth is the means to an end; in science, it is the only end. Hence the practical arts are not to be classed among the sciences.

~~~~~~~

The oldest of the arts and the youngest of the professions.

~~~~~~~

The one thing that marks the true artist is a clear perception and a firm, bold hand, in distinction from that imperfect mental vision and uncertain touch which give us the feeble pictures and the lumpy statues of the mere artisans on canvas or in stone.

~~~~~~~

The only kind of sublimity which a painter or sculptor should aim at is to express by certain proportions and positions of limbs and features that strength and dignity of mind, and vigor and activity of body, which enables men to conceive and execute great actions.

~~~~~~~

The only rule in art is what works.

~~~~~~~

The only success worth one’s powder was success in the line of one’s idiosyncrasy . what was talent but the art of being completely whatever one happened to be?

~~~~~~~

The only valid thing in art is the one thing that cannot be explained, to explain away the mystery of a great painting would do irreplaceable harm, for whenever you explain or define something you substitute the explanation or the definition for the Henri Matisse quotes

~~~~~~~

The ordinary true, or purely real, cannot be the object of the arts. Illusion on a ground of truth,–that is the secret of the fine arts.

~~~~~~~

The painter is, as to the execution of his work, a mechanic; but as to his conception, his spirit, and design, he is hardly below even the poet in liberal art.

~~~~~~~

The painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through.

~~~~~~~

The people no longer seek consolation in art. But the refined people, the rich, the idlers seek the new, the extraordinary, the extravagant, the scandalous.

~~~~~~~

The perfection of an art consists in the employment of a comprehensive system of laws, commensurate to every purpose within its scope, but concealed from the eye of the spectator; and in the production of effects that seem to flow forth spontaneously, as though uncontrolled by their influence, and which are equally excellent, whether regarded individually, or in reference to the proposed result.

~~~~~~~

The perfection of art is to conceal art.

~~~~~~~

The person interested in success has to learn to view failure as a healthy, inevitable part of the process of getting to the top. Anonymous quotes

~~~~~~~

The picture of a flower in a botanical book is information; its mission ends with our knowledge. But in pure art it is a personal communication. And therefore until it finds its harmony in the depth of our personality it misses the mark. We can treat existence solely as a textbook furnishing us lessons, and we shall not be disappointed, but we know that there its mission does not end. For in our joy in it, which is an end in itself, we feel that it is a communication, the final response of our knowing but the response of our being. Rabindranath Tagore quotes

~~~~~~~

The politician is … trained in the art of inexactitude. His words tend to be blunt or rounded, because if they have a cutting edge they may later return to wound him.

~~~~~~~

The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel.

~~~~~~~

The postman wants an autograph. The cab driver wants a picture. The waitress wants a handshake. Everyone wants a piece of you.

~~~~~~~

The power of painter or poet to describe what he calls an ideal thing depends upon its being to him not an ideal but a real thing. No man ever did or ever will work well but either from actual sight or sight of faith.

~~~~~~~

The price we pay when pursuing any art or calling, is an intimate knowledge of its ugly side.’ James Arthur Baldwin

The key to the mystery of a great artist is that for reasons unknown, he will give away his energies and his life just to make sure that one note follows another . . . and leaves us with the feeling that something is right in the world.’ Leonard Bernstein

~~~~~~~

The learned understand the reason of the art, the unlearned feel the pleasure.

~~~~~~~

The little dissatisfaction which every artist feels at the completion of a work forms the germ of a new work.

~~~~~~~

The Lord recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust. (Ruth 2:12) The Bible quotes

~~~~~~~

The mediator of the inexpressible is the work of art.

~~~~~~~

The mere mechanical technique of acting can be taught, but the spirit that is to give life to lifeless forms must be born in a man. No dramatic college can teach its pupils to think or to feel. It is Nature who makes our artists for us, though it may be Art who taught them their right mode of expression.’ Oscar Wilde

~~~~~~~

The mind is a wonderful thing. It starts working the minute you’re born, and doesn’t stop until you get up to speak in public.

~~~~~~~

The misfortune in the state is, that nobody can enjoy life in peace, but that everybody must govern; and in art, that nobody will enjoy what has been produced, but that every one wants to reproduce on his own account.

~~~~~~~

The more perfect the artist, the more completely separate in him will be the man who suffers and the mind which creates.’ T S Eliot

~~~~~~~

The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It’s the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and science. Whoever does not know it can no longer wander, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.

~~~~~~~

The most profound things are inexpressible.

~~~~~~~

The mother of useful arts is necessity; that of the fine arts is luxury. For father the former has intellect; the latter genius, which itself is a kind of luxury.

~~~~~~~

The names of great painters are like passing-bells: in the name of Velasquez you hear sounded the fall of Spain; .in the name of Titian, that of Venice; in the name of Leonardo, that of Milan; in the name of Raphael, that of Rome. And there is profound justice in this, for in proportion to the nobleness of the power is the guilt of its use for purposes vain or vile; and hitherto the greater the art, the more surely has it been used, and used solely, for the decoration of pride or the provoking of sensuality.

~~~~~~~

The negative is comparable to the composer’s score and the print to its performance. Each performance differs in subtle ways.

~~~~~~~

The notion that the public accepts or rejects anything in modern art is merely romantic fiction. The game is completed and the trophies distributed long before the public knows what has happened. Thomas Wolfe quotes

~~~~~~~

The object of art is to give life a shape.

~~~~~~~

The history of art is the history of revivals.

~~~~~~~

The idea of a mass audience was really an invention of the Industrial Revolution.

~~~~~~~

The individual, the great artist when he comes, uses everything that has been discovered or known about his art up to that point, being able to accept or reject in a time so short it seems that the knowledge was born with him, rather than that he takes instantly what it takes the ordinary man a lifetime to know, and then the great artist goes beyond what has been done or known and makes something of his own. Ernest Hemingway quotes

~~~~~~~

The inglorious arts of peace.

~~~~~~~

The irrepressible spirit that made his playing seem like good conversation is the Rubinstein legacy for pianists, if they can pick up their heads from the keyboard long enough to claim it.
