As your faith is strengthened you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will, and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit.
Faith and prayer are the vitamins of the soul; man cannot live in health without them.
Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.
Faith has to do with things that are not seen and hope with things that are not at hand.
Faith in oneself is the best and safest course.
Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse.
Works of art, in my opinion, are the only objects in the material universe to possess internal order, and that is why, though I don’t believe that only art matters, I do believe in Art for Art’s sake.
E. M. Forster
A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.
A painting that is well composed is half finished.
A picture is a poem without words.
Trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle.
When that shutter clicks, anything else that can be done afterward is not worth consideration.
Wherever art appears, life disappears.
Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.
George Bernard Shaw
Without freedom, no art; art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others.
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
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 task of art today is to bring chaos into order.
The terrifying and edible beauty of Art Nouveau architecture.
The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.
