The Art of Muses is the Bridge of Feeling.
A. Bartlett Giamatti
Teachers believe they have a gift for giving it drives them with the same irrepressible drive that drives others to create a work of art or a market or a building.
A.C. Bradley
The nature of a work of art is to be not a part, nor yet a copy of the real world but a world in itself, independent, complete, autonomous; and to possess it fully you must enter that world, conform to its laws, and ignore for a time the beliefs, aims, and particular conditions which belong to you in the other world of reality.
A.D. Posey
If you don't think screenwriting is a work of art, good luck in your life without a soul.
A.E. Samaan
LEFTISTS EAT THEIR CHILDREN: The poets, artists, and radicals are murdered first once the revolution actually comes about.
A.E. Samaan
Art was the first casualty of the Socialist and Communist revolutions of the 20th Century. Socialists killed the independent thinkers first.
A.E. Samaan
The spoken word is ephemeral. The written word, eternal. A symphony, timeless.
A.E. Samaan
Art should be for sale. The artist should not.
A.H. Scott
Art has the ability to change minds. Passion is what changes the world. When both collide, it's as powerful as a bomb. Art isn't pretty and poised fluff. Art is brutal and snarling. Artists growl. This is the roar of change that beats within them. - 8/29/11
A.H. Septimius
What had, moments ago, appeared a dangerous gambit, now seemed an elegant coup de maître.
A.M. Willard
When art calls, you have to follow it. It doesn't happen often, so take the opportunity when it strikes. In all reality, what I do is art. I do create fabulous pieces of decorative baked goods.
A.S. Byatt
Those words . . . national and portrait. They were both to do with identity: the identity of a culture (place, language and history), the identity of an individual human being as an object for mimetic representation.
A.S. Byatt
Contemporary' was in those days [1953] synonymous with 'modern' as it had not been before and is not now [1977].
A.S. Byatt
A metamorphosis... The shining butterfly of the soul from the pupa of the body. Larva, pupa, imago. An image of art.
Aaron Siskind
The inner drama is the meaning of the exterior event.
Aberjhani
To create art with all the passion in one's soul is to live art with all the beauty in one's heart.
Aberjhani
A world without poetry and art would be too much like one without birds or flowers: bearable but a lot less enjoyable.
Aberjhani
Poetry and art nourish the soul of the world with the flavor-filled substances of beauty, wisdom and truth.
Aberjhani
The image titled The Homeless, Psalm 85:10, featured on the cover of ELEMENTAL, can evoke multiple levels of response. They may include the spiritual in the form of a studied meditation upon the multidimensional qualities of the painting itself; or an extended contemplation of the scripture in the title, which in the King James Bible reads as follows: Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. The painting can also inspire a physical response in the form of tears as it calls to mind its more earth-bound aspects; namely, the very serious plight of those who truly are homeless in this world, whether born into such a condition, or forced into it by poverty or war.
Abhijit Naskar
The art of filmmaking is the most influential form of art that has ever existed throughout the history of human artistic endeavors.
Abhijit Naskar
Without art, a film is pure wastage of time and resources.
Abhijit Naskar
Art is the medicine for the soul.
Abhijit Naskar
A movie is not a movie, it is a potential nuclear furnace of inspiration, courage and conscience.
Abraham Lincoln
The highest art is always the most religious, and the greatest artist is always a devout person.
Ad Reinhardt
Art is Art. Everything else is everything else.
Adolf Hitler
Alle, der ser og maler en grøn himmel og en blå kornmark, burde steriliseres.
Adriana Trigiani
Who's the artist?My favorite. She pauses. Unknown. Edydie sits cross-legged on the couch. There is something so pure about an artist creating something for the sheer joy of it, then sharing it with people and claiming no credit. To me that's the height of romance.
Adriana Trigiani
My day begins at dawn as I take my cup of strong black espresso outside to watch the sunrise. I learned this ritual from my mother, who worked in a bread shop. Bakers are the great philosophers of the world, mostly because they have to get up early. When the world is quiet, great art is created - or, at the very least, conceptualized. Now is the moment to sketch, make notes, and dream.
Adriana Trigiani
Art makes the spirit soar. And when the spirit is lifted, life follows.

Seni yang benar-benar seni, tentu saja berbeda, dan anak-anak muda itu memakai alasan seni untuk membenarkan sikap mereka yang malas-malasan
Agnes Grinstead Anderson
I sat there and my love to him poured out more and more, and, lo, he flew down to a stump, and then to my knee. I knew beyond a shadow of doubt that the important thing is the love that goes out from oneself.
Agnes Martin
When I think of art I think of beauty. Beauty is the mystery of life. It is not in the eye it is in the mind. In our minds there is awareness of perfection.
Agnes Martin
Art is the concrete representation of our most subtle feelings.
Ahmed Mostafa
Handling a woman is an art that no one masters.
Ai Weiwei
We are living in a very complex society. It puts me in a complex frame of thinking.
Akhenaton
Those who gave thee a body, furnished it with weakness but He who gave thee Soul, armed thee with resolution. Employ it, and thou art wise be wise and thou art happy.
Akira Kurosawa
To be an artist means never to avert one's eyes.
Akshay Vasu
Art is a place where tragedy meets beauty. An artist is someone who creates the most beautiful things of his life when his soul starts bleeding.
Akshay Vasu
She was a poem and a painting too. Everything she said sounded like a song, every silence was the music too.
Al Capp
Abstract art: a product of the untalented sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered.
Alain de Botton
It is in books, poems, paintings which often give us the confidence to take seriously feelings in ourselves that we might otherwise never have thought to acknowledge.
Alain de Botton
In a secularising world, art has replaced religion as a touchstone of our reverence and devotion.
Alain de Botton
What we encounter in works of art and philosophy are objective versions of our own pains and struggles, evoked and defined in sound, language or image. Artists and philosophers not only show us what we have felt, they present our experiences more poignantly and intelligently than we have been able; they give shape to aspects of our lives that we recognise as our own, yet could never have understood so clearly on our own. They explain our condition to us, and thereby help us to be less lonely with, and confused by it.
Alain de Botton
It is in dialogue with pain that many beautiful things acquire their value. Acquaintance with grief turns out to be one of the more unusual prerequisites of architectural appreciation. We might, quite aside from all other requirements, need to be a little sad before buildings can properly touch us.
Alain de Botton
The essence of art is that its one case applies to thousands,' knew Schopenhauer.
Alain de Botton
What we seek, at the deepest level, is inwardly to resemble, rather than physically to possess, the objects and places that touch us through their beauty.
Alain de Botton
Art was the very antithesis of crass moralism.
Alan Bennett
Solo quello che vedi con la coda dell'occhio ti tocca nel profondo.(E.M. Forster)
Alan Moore
His sister, in a big turquoise Angora sweater, leaned upon the wood frame of the open nursery door, anxiously looking out to see if he was really going to show, beaming and waving like a pastel colored TV Muppet when she spotted him.
Alan Rickman
If only life could be a little more tender and art a little more robust.
Alan Shapiro
All works of nonfiction, or memoir, have to first and foremost be art before they can be true. They have to be artful first before they can be truthful... If you emphasize the truth-telling at the expense of art, nobody is going to be interested in it. And if you sacrifice truth in the name of art, you risk triviality. There's a constant balance between those two.
Alanis Morissette
Trauma happens in relationships, so it can only be healed in relationships. Art can't provide healing. It can be cathartic and therapeutic but a relationship is a three-part journey.
Alanis Morissette
I try to keep a low profile in general. Not with my art, but just as a person.
Albert Camus
Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future.
Albert Camus
Without freedom, no art art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others.
Albert Camus
A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession.
Albert Camus
In order to be created, a work of art must first make use of the dark forces of the soul
Albert Camus
Creating is living doubly. The groping, anxious quest of a Proust, his meticulous collecting of flowers, of wallpapers, and of anxieties, signifies nothing else.
Albert Camus
A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession.
Albert Camus
Truly fertile Music, the only kind that will move us, that we shall truly appreciate, will be a Music conducive to Dream, which banishes all reason and analysis. One must not wish first to understand and then to feel. Art does not tolerate Reason.
Albert Camus
A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.

Let us seek the respite where it is
Albert Einstein
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.
Albert Einstein
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
Albert Einstein
True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist.
Albert Einstein
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
Albert Einstein
It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure.
Albert Einstein
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead and his eyes are dimmed.
Albert Einstein
How can cosmic religious feeling be communicated from one person to another, if it can give rise to no definite notion of a God and no theology? In my view, it is the most important function of art and science to awaken this feeling and keep it alive in those who are receptive to it.
Albert Einstein
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.
Albert Einstein
One of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.
Albert Ellis
The art of love is largely the art of persistence.
Albert Pinkham Ryder
Imitation is not inspiration, and inspiration only can give birth to a work of art. The least of man's original emanation is better than the best of borrowed thought.
Alberto Giacometti
In every work of art the subject is primordial, whether the artist knows it or not. The measure of the formal qualities is only a sign of the measure of the artist's obsession with his subject the form is always in proportion to the obsession.
Alberto Savinio
L'art rallume toujours les lumières du paradis perdu
Albrecht Durer
As I grew older, I realized that it was much better to insist on the genuine forms of nature, for simplicity is the greatest adornment of art.
Albrecht Dürer
Truly, art is embedded in nature; he who can extract it, has it.
Aldo Leopold
Our ability to perceive quality in nature begins, as in art, with the pretty. It expands through successive stages of the beautiful to values as yet uncaptured by language.
Aldous Huxley
Perhaps it's good for one to suffer. Can an artist do anything if he's happy? Would he ever want to do anything? What is art, after all, but a protest against the horrible inclemency of life?
Aldous Huxley

Aldous Huxley
Europe is so well gardened that it resembles a work of art, a scientific theory, a neat metaphysical system. Man has re-created Europe in his own image.
Aldous Huxley
It's a very salutary thing to realize that the rather dull universe in which most of us spend most of our time is not the only universe there is. I think it's healthy that people should have this experience.
Aldous Huxley
The finest works of art are precious, among other reasons, because they make it possible for us to know, if only imperfectly and for a little while, what it actually feels like to think subtly and feel nobly.
Aleister Crowley
Beauty is itself so unattainable that it escapes altogether; and the true artist, like the true Mystic, can never rest
Aleister Crowley
Indubitably, Magick is one of the subtlest and most difficult of the sciences and arts. There is more opportunity for errors of comprehension, judgement and practice than in any other branch of physics.
Alejandro Jodorowsky
For a true artist, difficulties become opportunities and clouds become solid present.
Alex Gino
Artists are never appreciated at lunchtime, Kelly mumbled as she stuffed her camera into her pocket.
Alex Ross
Don't make it new; make it whole.
Alex Shakar
On a cement pediment stands the inevitable bronze statue of a man in a cheap suit.
Alex Z. Moores
They spent years putting the tiniest of details on these works of art. It reminded me of what we try to do with ourselves. We spend years trying to paint our personalities to look a certain way or to carve memories into our souls.
Alexander Calder
I paint with shapes.
Alexander Calder
To an engineer, good enough means perfect. With an artist, there's no such thing as perfect.
Alexander Pope
A work of art that contains theories is like an object on which the price tag has been left.
Alexander Pope
Music resembles poetry, in eachAre nameless graces which no methods teach,And which a master hand alone can reach.
Alexander Pope
To wake the soul by tender strokes of art,To raise the genius, and to mend the heart
Alexander Pope
So vast is art, so narrow human wit.
Alexander Pope
All nature is but art unknown to thee.
Alexander Pope
One science only will one genius fit so vast is art, so narrow human wit.
Alexander Pope
True ease in writing comes from art, not chance, as those who move easiest have learned to dance.
Alexandre Dumas
You are perfectly right in objecting to them [modern art], for this one great fault - that they have not yet had time to become old.
Alfred Adler
The educator must believe in the potential power of his pupil, and he must employ all his art in seeking to bring his pupil to experience this power.
Alfred de Vigny
Art ought never to be considered except in its relations with its ideal beauty.
Alfred Jarry
One can show one's contempt for the cruelty and stupidity of the world by making of one's life a poem of incoherence and absurdity.
Alfred Jarry
The work of art is a stuffed crocodile.
Alfred North Whitehead
Art attracts us only by what it reveals of our most secret self.
Alfred North Whitehead
Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment is recognition of the pattern.
Ali Smith
It's so warm it's almost friendly. A friendly work of art. I've never thought such a thing in my life. And look at it. It's never sentimental. It's generous, but it's sardonic too. And whenever it's sardonic, a moment later it's generous again.
Ali Smith
The power of the artform is stronger than stone, the poet says, and chooses the sonnet, a form concerned with argument and persuasion, to say so. This sonnet, he says, will last longer than any gravestone-and you'll be made shinier, brighter, by it. In this form it will-and therefore you will-avoid destruction by war, history, time generally; it'll even keep you alive after death; in fact it'll form a place for you to live, not die, where you'll be seen in the eyes of and the context of this love right to the end of time.
Ali Smith
And it suggests this truth about the place where aesthetic form meets the human mind. For even if we were to find ourselves homeless, in a strange land, with nothing of ourselves left-say we lost everything-we'd still have another kind of home, in aesthetic form itself, in the familiarity, the unchanging assurance that a known rhythm, a recognised line, the familiar shape of a story, a tune, a line or phrase or sentence gives us every time, even long after we've forgotten we even know it.
Alice Miller
I was not out to paint beautiful pictures; even painting good pictures was not important to me. I wanted only to help the truth burst forth.
Alice Walker
The absence of models, in literature as in life, to say nothing of painting, is an occupational hazard for the artist, simply because models in art, in behavior, in growth of spirit and intellect--even if rejected--enrich and enlarge one's view of existence. Deadlier still, to the artist who lacks models, is the curse of ridicule, the bringing to bear on an artist's best work, especially his or her most original, most strikingly deviant, only a fund of ignorance and the presumption that as an artist's critic one's judgement is free of the restrictions imposed by prejudice, and is well informed, indeed, about all the art in the world that really matters.
Alice Walker
What is always needed in the appreciation of art, or life, is the larger perspective. Connections made, or at least attempted, where none existed before, the straining to encompass in one's glance at the varied world the common thread, the unifying theme through immense diversity, a fearlessness of growth, of search, of looking, that enlarges the private and the public world. And yet, in our particular society, it is the narrowed and narrowing view of life that often wins
Alice Walker
Deliver me from writers who say the way they live doesn't matter. I'm not sure a bad person can write a good book. If art doesn't make us better, then what on earth is it for.
Alice Walker
Deliver me from writers who say the way they live doesn't matter. I'm not sure a bad person can write a good book, If art doesn't make us better, then what on earth is it for.
Allan Kaprow
Most humans, it seems, still put up fences around their acts and thoughts
Allan Kaprow
...it's not what artists touch that counts most. It's what they don't touch.
Allen Ginsberg
Poetry is the one place where people can speak their original human mind. It is the outlet for people to say in public what is known in private.
Alvar Aalto
Nothing is as dangerous in architecture as dealing with separated problems. If we split life into separated problems we split the possibilities to make good building art.
Alvar Aalto
Building art is a synthesis of life in materialised form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together.
Alys Arden
As an artist, if your work doesn't inflame at least part of the audience, then you might as well call it quits and sell insurance... The world needs more boundary pushers, not more boundary creators.
Alyson Noel
But why didn't you just ask me? I set down my fork and glare at her. Because you were sleeping, She says, taking a sip if Chardonnay.I was taking a nap, Mom. It wasn't intended to be some kind of Disney fairy-tale hundred-year snooze.
Ama H. Vanniarachchy
I love the smell of pastels...that breaths life into my soul.

Painting, n.: The art of protecting flat surfaces from the weather, and exposing them to the critic.
Ambrose Bierce
Eloquence, n. The art of orally persuading fools that white is the color that it appears to be. It includes the gift of making any color appear white.
Amit K Ghosh
Politics is a delicate art of saying what people want to hear and doing what people don't want to hear
Amit Kalantri
Knowledge was scattered treasure, education organized it into art, commerce and science.

Magic is the stunning art of surprising your audience, so that nothing else surprises them.
Amit Ray
Life is a living flute, yoga is the art of creating melody and rhythm in it.
Amit Ray
Yoga is the art work of awareness on the canvas of body, mind, and soul.
Amy Leigh Mercree
Listen within to find shining poetry and hear extraordinary music. You are a work of art.
Amy Leigh Mercree
I let my love for all flow through art, and I express how I feel.
Amy Lowell
Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.
Amy Whitaker
In bluntest terms, art museums risk being commercial institutions in which art is subsumed by economics and the experience of looking at art becomes a form of consumption.
Ana Claudia Antunes
Pay to go inside Neruda's homeA body lies there with no dome.But right there in the front hallLean a fairy against the icy wall.Oh Endless enigmas had the bard!Nice and large and calm backyardEnds In the middle of a rare roomRare portrait of revelishing gloom.Up climbing at the weird snail stairDoes make you grasp for some air.And there's a room with bric-a-brac:Old and precious books all in a pack.Dare saying what I liked most of all?Enjoyed seeing visitors having a ball!
Anais Nin
If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
Anaïs Nin
I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.
Anais Nin
It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.
Anastasia Bolinder
I romanticize life the way artists see scenery or a dreamer gazes up at the stars.
Anastasia Bolinder
The point of dreams was never to be the affordable option, it was the one everyone else saw as a mistake and every creative person saw as an opportunity.
Anastasia Lily
Whether you love Bach or would rather listen to a composition produced by Kulitta Software, Bach has and will continue to demand the we approach and answer the question, 'what is the art, science and language of music?
Anatole France
The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.
Anatole France
In art as in love, instinct is enough.

What can be more foolish than to think that all this rare fabric of heaven and earth could come by chance, when all the skill of art is not able to make an oyster!
André Bazin
Reality is not art, but a realist art is one that can create an integral aesthetic of reality.
André Breton

Beauty will be convulsive or will not be at all.

André Breton
(speaking of Ann Radcliffe) A work of art worthy of the name is one which gives us back the freshness of the emotions of childhood.
André Breton
Il faut que l'homme s'évade de cette lice ridicule qu'on lui a faite: le prétendu réel actuel avec la perspective d'un réel futur qui ne vaille guère mieux. Chaque minute pleine porte en elle-même la négation de siècles d'histoire boitillante et cassée. Ceux à qui il appartient de faire virevolter ces huit flamboyants au-dessus de nous ne le pourront qu'avec de la sève pure._ Manifestes du surréalisme
Andre Dubus
What is art if not a concentrated and impassioned effort to make something with the little we have, the little we see?
Andre Gide
The sole art that suits me is that which, rising from unrest, tends toward serenity.
Andre Gide
Art is the collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.
Andre Gide
Art begins with resistance - at the point where resistance is overcome. No human masterpiece has ever been created without great labor.
André Gide
I have always thought that great artists were those who dared to confer the right of beauty on things so natural that people say on seeing them, Why did I never realize before that that was beautiful too?
André Gide
Terre en vacance d'oeuvres d'art. Je méprise ceux qui ne savent reconnaître la beauté que transcrite déjà et toute interprétée. Le peuple arabe a ceci d'admirable que, son art, il le vit, il le chante et le dissipe au jour le jour; il ne le fixe point et ne l'embaume en aucune oeuvre. C'est la cause et l'effet de l'absence de grands artistes. J'ai toujours cru les grands artistes ceux qui osent donner droit de beauté à des choses si naturelles qu'elles font dire après à qui les voit : 'Comment n'avais-je pas compris jusqu'alors que cela était aussi beau?...
Andre Gide
Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.
Andre Gide
There is no prejudice that the work of art does not finally overcome.
Andre Malraux
Art is a revolt against fate. All art is a revolt against man's fate.
Andre Maurois
Memory is a great artist. For every man and for every woman it makes the recollection of his or her life a work of art and an unfaithful record.
Andrea Pomelli
Feet on the ground, head in the clouds. That's how giants walk.
Andrei Tarkovsky
It is obvious that art cannot teach anyone anything, since in four thousand years humanity has learnt nothing at all. We should long ago have become angels had we been capable of paying attention to the experience of art, and allowing ourselves to be changed in accordance with the ideals it expresses. Art only has the capacity, through shock and catharsis, to make the human soul receptive to good. It's ridiculous to imagine that people can be taught to be good…Art can only give food
Andrei Tarkovsky
Masterpieces, not always distinguished or distinguishable among all the works with pretensions to genius, are scattered about the world like warning notices in a mine field.
Andrei Tarkovsky

Andrei Tarkovsky
No other art can compare with cinema in the force, precision, and starkness with which it conveys awareness of facts and aesthetic structures existing and changing within time.
Andrew Miller
And yet, in terms of its emotive potential, I still find art more attractive, currently, than books, which fail at a deeper level.
Andrew Miller
Art, I subsequently realised, is like that. It softens by association and implication. It renders the hard pliable. It creates gaps, gaping holes really, in possibility.
Andrew Davidson
The urge is always with me to retouch yesterday's canvas with today's paintbrush and cover the things that fill me with regret..
Andrew Loomis
One's skill is never complete, one's knowledge is forever lacking, one's taste is invariably altered, one's opinion ever subject to controversy. There is a complete and constant urge towards improvement.
Andrew Loomis
No knack of drawing heads can compete with sound knowledge.
Andrew Loomis
I have never found a book that stressed the importance of myself as a caretaker of my ability, of staying healthy mentally and physically, or that gave me an inkling that my courage might be strained to the utmost.
Andrew Loomis
As a student I thought there was a formula of some kind that I would get hold of somewhere, and thereby become and artist. There is a formula, but it has not been in books. It is really plain old courage, standing on one's own feet, and forever seeking enlightenment; courage to develop your way, but learning from the other fellow; experimentation with your own ideas, observing for yourself, a rigid discipline of doing over that which you can improve.
Andrew Loomis
There's only one way to assure consistently good work. That is consistently thorough preparation.
Andrew Loomis
It is ten per cent how you draw, and ninety per cent what you draw.
Andrew Peterson
The burden God places on each of us is to become who we are meant to be. We are most fully ourselves when Christ most fully lives in us and through us. The mother shines brightest with her child in her arms, the father when he forgives his wandering son, and the artist when he or she is drawing attention to grace, by showing the pinprick of light overcoming the darkness in the painting, or the story, or the song. The world knows darkness. Christ came into the world to show us light. I have seen it, have been blinded by it, invaded by it. I will tell its story.
Andrew Solomon
There is no such thing as reproduction, only acts of production.
Andrew Wilson
After reading Burgum, [Patricia Highsmith] wrote in her cahier that, like Kafka, she felt she was a pessimist, unable to formulate a system in which an individual could believe in God, government or self. Again like Kafka, she looked into the great abyss which separated the spiritual and the material and saw the terrifying emptiness, the hollowness, at the heart of every man, a sense of alienation she felt compelled to explore in her fiction. As her next hero, she would take an architect, 'a young man whose authority is art and therefore himself,' who when he murders, 'feels no guilt or even fear when he thinks of legal retribution'. The more she read of Kafka the more she felt afraid as she came to realise, 'I am so similar to him.
Andrew Wilson
The artistic life is a long and lovely suicide precisely because it involves the negation of self; as Highsmith imagined herself as her characters, so Ripley takes on the personae of others and in doing so metamorphoses himself into a 'living' work of art. A return to the 'real life' after a period of creativity resulted in a fall in spirits, an agony Highsmith felt acutely. She voiced this pain in the novel via Bernard's quotation of an excerpt from Derwatt's notebook: 'There is no depression for the artist except that caused by a return to the self'.
Andrew Wyeth
I do an awful lot of thinking and dreaming about things in the past and the future - the timelessness of the rocks and the hills - all the people who have existed there. I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show.

You know what? I'm an artist. I'm an artist and I'm gonna make art, arty art art!
Andy Goldsworthy
My art is an attempt to reach beyond the surface appearance. I want to see growth in wood, time in stone, nature in a city, and I do not mean its parks but a deeper understanding that a city is nature too-the ground upon which it is built, the stone with which it is made.
Andy Warhol
An artist is someone who produces things that people don't need to have but that he - for some reason - thinks it would be a good idea to give them.
Andy Warhol
I see art in everything. Your shoes. That car. This coffee cup. It's art if you see it as art. The best art are those dime novels. People will put those books in a museum one day. Artists will make paintings of them. They're beautiful. And for everyone. That's how I want my art to be.
Andy Warhol
Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.
Andy Warhol
The mystery was gone but the amazement was just starting.
Andy Warhol
You know it's ART, when the check clears.

Andy Warhol
Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.
Andy Warhol
I'm afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning.
