Quotation Bullet

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.
~ William Faulkner - [Arts and Artists]

Quotation Bullet

Art for art's sake? I should think so, and more so than ever at the present time. It is the one orderly product which our middling race has produced. It is the cry of a thousand sentinels, the echo from a thousand labyrinths, it is the lighthouse which cannot be hidden... it is the best evidence we can have of our dignity.
~ Edward M. Forster - [Arts and Artists]

Quotation Bullet

For the time it is the only thing worth doing --to do just that; be it a sonnet, a statue, a landscape, an outline head of Caesar, or an oration.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson - [Arts and Artists]

Quotation Bullet

Every artist was first an amateur.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson - [Arts and Artists]

Quotation Bullet

I don't want life to imitate art. I want life to be art.
~ Carrie Fisher - [Arts and Artists]

In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.
~ Ernst Fischer - [Arts and Artists]

Quotation Bullet

In art as in love, instinct is enough.
~ Anatole France - [Arts and Artists]
