A picture is worth a thousand words.
A sculptor is a person who is interested in the shape of things, a poet in words, a musician by sounds.
A work of art is the unique result of a unique temperament.
A writer should write with his eyes and a painter paint with his ears.
Abstract art: a product of the untalented sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered.
It is a mistake for a sculptor or a painter to speak or write very often about his job. It releases tension needed for his work.
It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process.
Lesser artists borrow, great artists steal.
Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life.
Life is painting a picture, not doing a sum.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
