Danh ngôn nghệ thuật


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.
My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.

~*~
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.

~*~
Art is the beautiful way of doing things. Science is the effective way of doing things. Business is the economic way of doing things.
~*~
When science, art, literature, and philosophy are simply the manifestation of personality they are on a level where glorious and dazzling achievements are possible, which can make a man's name live for thousands of years.

~*~
All art is but imitation of nature.
Seneca

~*~
In art as in love, instinct is enough.
~*~
I do not have much patience with a thing of beauty that must be explained to be understood. If it does need additional interpretation by someone other than the creator, then I question whether it has fulfilled its purpose.
~*~
Patience is the art of hoping.

~*~
I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.

~*~
Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.

~*~
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
~*~
The artist doesn't have time to listen to the critics. The ones who want to be writers read the reviews, the ones who want to write don't have the time to read reviews.

~*~
A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession.

~*~
Art is the most beautiful deception of all.
~*~
Competitions are for horses, not artists.

~*~
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

~*~
Without freedom, no art; art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others.

~*~
Without poets, without artists, men would soon weary of nature's monotony.

~*~
The only realism in art is of the imagination.
~*~
Every science begins as philosophy and ends as art.

~*~
Art is vice. You don't marry it legitimately, you rape it.

The artist vocation is to send light into the human heart.

~*~
In art there are only fast or slow developments. Essentially it is a matter of evolution, not revolution.

~*~
I see drawings and pictures in the poorest of huts and the dirtiest of corners.
~*~
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?

~*~
The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.

~*~
What strikes me is the fact that in our society, art has become something which is related only to objects and not to individuals, or to life. That art is something which is specialized or which is done by experts who are artists. But couldn't everyone's life become a work of art? Why should the lamp or the house be an art object, but not our life?

~*~
Nothing right can be accomplished in art without enthusiasm.
~*~
An artist is a creature driven by demons. He doesn't know why they choose him and he's usually too busy to wonder why.

~*~
There are two men inside the artist, the poet and the craftsman. One is born a poet. One becomes a craftsman.

~*~
In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.
~*~


Engineering: "How will this work?"

Science: "Why will this work?"
Management: "When will this work?"
Liberal Arts: "Do you want fries with that?"

~*~
The real truthfulness of all works of imagination, sculpture, painting, and written fiction, is so purely in the imagination, that the artist never seeks to represent positive truth, but the idealized image of a truth.

~*~
I hate artists who are not of their time.

~*~
Fortunately art is a community effort - a small but select community living in a spiritualized world endeavoring to interpret the wars and the solitudes of the flesh.
~*~
One must do the same subject over again ten times, a hundred times. In art nothing must resemble an accident, not even movement.

~*~
To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist.

~*~
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
Scott Adams

~*~
To any artist, worthy of the name, all in nature is beautiful, because his eyes, fearlessly accepting all exterior truth, read there, as in an open book, all the inner truth.

~*~
The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation.

~*~
The pit of a theatre is the one place where the tears of virtuous and wicked men alike are mingled.

~*~
Just because no one understands you, doesn't make you an artist.

You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
George Bernard Shaw

~*~
Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

~*~
Our culture is more shaped by the arts and humanities than it often is by politics.
