Quidley Art quotes by Dave Eggers
#1. But criticism, for the most part, comes from the opposite place that book-enjoying should come from. To enjoy art one needs time, patience, and a generous heart, and criticism is done, by and large, by impatient people who have axes to grind. The worst sort of critics are (analogy coming) butterfly collectors - they chase something, ostensibly out of their search for beauty, then, once they get close, they catch that beautiful something, they kill it, they stick a pin through its abdomen, dissect it and label it. The whole process, I find, is not a happy or healthy one. Someone with his or her own shit figured out, without any emotional problems or bitterness or envy, instead of killing that which he loves, will simply let the goddamn butterfly fly, and instead of capturing and killing it and sticking it in a box, will simply point to it - "Hey everyone, look at that beautiful thing" - hoping everyone else will see the beautiful thing he has seen. Just as no one wants to grow up to be an IRS agent, no one should want to grow up to maliciously dissect books. #Quote by Dave Eggers
Quidley Art quotes by Andrei Tarkovsky
#2. The idea of infinity cannot be expressed in words or even described, but it can be apprehended through art, which makes infinity tangible. The absolute is only attainable through faith and in the creative act. #Quote by Andrei Tarkovsky
Quidley Art quotes by Kakuzo Okakura
#3. Art, to be fully appreciated, must be true to contemporaneous life. It is not that we should ignore the claims of posterity, but that we should seek to enjoy the present more. It is not that we should disregard the creations of the past, but that we should try to assimilate them into our consciousness. #Quote by Kakuzo Okakura
Quidley Art quotes by Richard M. Rorty
#4. Vladimir Nabokov and George Orwell had quite different gifts, and their self-images were quite different. But, I shall argue, their accomplishment was pretty much the same. Both of them warn the liberal ironist intellectual against temptations to be cruel. Both of them dramatise the tension between private irony and liberal hope.

In the following passage, Nabokov helped blur the distinctions which I want to draw:

...'Lolita' has no moral in tow. For me a work of fiction exists only in so far as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. There are not many such books. All the rest is either topical trash or what some call the Literature of Ideas, which very often is topical trash coming in huge blocks of plaster that are carefully transmitted from age to age until somebody comes along with a hammer and takes a good crack at Balzac, at Gorki, at Mann.

Orwell blurred the same distinctions when, in one of his rare descents into rant, "The Frontiers of Art and Propaganda," he wrote exactly the sort of thing Nabokov loathed:

You cannot take a purely aesthetic interest in a disease you are dying from; you cannot feel dispassionately about a man who is about to cut your throat. In a world in which Fascism and Socialism were fighting one another, any thinking person had to take side #Quote by Richard M. Rorty
Quidley Art quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#5. What fiction and art can do, particularly narrative art, is construct consciousness - in a sense, we have to do it for the first time, every time. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Quidley Art quotes by Tim Brown
#6. Mastering the art of asking questions is essential to creativity and innovation. A More Beautiful Question should be standard reading for all aspiring design thinkers as well an inspiration to those searching for a life of curiosity and meaning. #Quote by Tim Brown
Quidley Art quotes by Brock Yates
#7. If any vestige of the American automobile industry is to survive, it must involve state-of-the-art vehicles that are not equal to but surpass the best imports in every way. #Quote by Brock Yates
Quidley Art quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#8. Music is the purest form of art, and therefore the most direct expression of beauty, with a form and spirit which is one and simple, and least encumbered with anything extraneous. We seem to feel that the manifestation of the infinite in the finite forms of creation is music itself, silent and visible. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Quidley Art quotes by Ayn Rand
#9. A cardinal principle of good fiction [is]: the theme and the plot of a novel must be integrated - as thoroughly integrated as mind and body or thought and action in a rational view of man. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Quidley Art quotes by Robert Helpmann
#10. I don't despair about the cultural scene in Australia because there isn't one to despair about. #Quote by Robert Helpmann

#13. It is only the educated who can produce or appreciate high art. #Quote by Margaret Of Valois
Quidley Art quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#14. What I have lately said of painting is equally true with respect to poetry. It is only necessary for us to know what is really excellent, and venture to give it expression; and that is saying much in few words. To-day I have had a scene, which, if literally related, would, make the most beautiful idyl in the world. But why should I talk of poetry and scenes and idyls? Can we never take pleasure in nature without having recourse to art? #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Quidley Art quotes by Caragh M. O'Brien
#15. I guess that blows your theory, Paige. Niceness trumps art. #Quote by Caragh M. O'Brien
Quidley Art quotes by John Fowles

Quidley Art quotes by Georges Franju
#17. What pleases is what is terrible, gentle, and poetic. #Quote by Georges Franju
Quidley Art quotes by Art Alexakis
#18. I loved hard-rock bands, and I loved songwriters who told stories. #Quote by Art Alexakis
Quidley Art quotes by Todd Walker
#19. I wonder what art is about and I'm not sure that what I do is art because I'm a photographer, not an artist. But whatever you do, the secret is to do what you think you ought to do, and do the hell out of it. #Quote by Todd Walker
Quidley Art quotes by Mikhail Tal
#20. Botvinnik's right! When he says such things, then he's right. Usually, I prefer not to study chess but to play it. For me chess is more an art than a science. It's been said that Alekhine and I played similar chess, except that he studied more. Yes, perhaps, but I have to say that he played, too. #Quote by Mikhail Tal
Quidley Art quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#21. But you have no house and no courtyard to your no-house, he thought. You have no family but a brother who goes to battle tomorrow and you own nothing but the wind and the sun and an empty belly. The wind is small, he thought, and there is no sun. You have four grenades in your pocket but they are only good to throw away. You have a carbine on your back but it is only good to give away bullets. You have a message to give away. And you're full of crap that you can give to the earth, he grinned in the dark. You can anoint it also with urine. Everything you have is to give. Thou art a phenomenon of philosophy and an unfortunate man, he told himself and grinned again. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Quidley Art quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#22. Colors are light's suffering and joy #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Quidley Art quotes by Henri Matisse
#23. Arrival = Prison, and the artist must never be a prisoner. #Quote by Henri Matisse
Quidley Art quotes by Lou Dorfsman
#24. Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea. #Quote by Lou Dorfsman
Quidley Art quotes by Doug Aitken
#25. Art is always a search for understanding, and the different levels and frequencies of that search feel completely comfortable and natural to me. #Quote by Doug Aitken

Quidley Art quotes by Lynne Truss
#29. Joseph Robertson wrote in an essay on punctuation in 1785, "The art of punctuation is of infinite consequence in writing; as it contributes to the perspicuity, and consequently to the beauty, of every composition. #Quote by Lynne Truss
Quidley Art quotes by Kiki Smith
#30. I think a lot of making art is listening to yourself. #Quote by Kiki Smith
Quidley Art quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#31. I've read books in school that were written by ideological rote - they were brainwashers. Therefore, any art, any literature, that has a clearly defined political goal is repellent to me. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Quidley Art quotes by Patti Smith
#32. ..slowly I discerned a familiar shift in my concentration. That compulsion that prohibits me from completely surrendering to a work of art, drawing me from the halls of a favored museum to my own drafting table. Pressing me to close Songs of Innocence in order to experience, as Blake, a glimpse of the divine that may also become a poem.
That is the decisive power of a singular work:a call to action. And I, time and again, am overcome with the hubris to believe I can answer that call #Quote by Patti Smith
Quidley Art quotes by Michelle Korenfeld
#33. Grow to be a creative adult, and you'll develop and inspire others. Grow to be a thinker and you'll be aware of the animlas, the plants, and the fascinating veriety of people in our world. #Quote by Michelle Korenfeld
Quidley Art quotes by Kazimir Malevich
#34. I realized that the "thing" and the "concept" were substituted for feeling and understood the falsity of the world of will and idea #Quote by Kazimir Malevich
Quidley Art quotes by Ted Shawn
#35. I believe that dance is the oldest, noblest and most cogent of the arts. I believe that dance is the most perfect symbol of the activity of God and His angels. I believe that dance has the power to heal, mentally and physically. I believe that true education in the art of dance is education of the whole man. #Quote by Ted Shawn
Quidley Art quotes by Agnes Martin
#36. I once taught art to adults in a night course. I had a woman who painted her back yard, and she said it was the first time she had ever really looked at it. I think everyone sees beauty. Art is a way to respond #Quote by Agnes Martin
Quidley Art quotes by Robert Harris
#37. Cicero smiled at us. 'The art of life is to deal with problems as they arise, rather than destory one's spirit by worrying about them too far in advance. Especially tonight. #Quote by Robert Harris
Quidley Art quotes by Marina Tsvetaeva
#38. Old men, old men, old men. Medals, medals, medals. Not a brow without a furrow, not a breast without a star. My brother and husband are uniquely-young here. The grouping of young Grand Dukes doesn't count because a grouping is just what they are: a marble bas-relief. Today the whole old-age of Russia seems to have flowed into this place in homage to the eternal youth of Greece. A living lesson of history and philosophy: this is what time does with people, this is what it does
with gods. This is what time does with a man, this is what (a glance at the statues) art does. And, the last lesson: this is what time does with a man; this is what a man does with time. But because of my youth I don't think about that, I feel only a cold shudder. ("The Opening of the Museum") #Quote by Marina Tsvetaeva
Quidley Art quotes by William Shenstone
#39. To thee, fair Freedom! I retire From flattery, cards, and dice, and din: Nor art thou found in mansions higher Than the low cot, or humble inn. #Quote by William Shenstone
Quidley Art quotes by Julia Claiborne Johnson
#40. To pick you up, Frank, I'm going to have to put both my hands on you", I said. "That will be alright", he said. "Until you master the art of levitation. #Quote by Julia Claiborne Johnson
Quidley Art quotes by Neil Gaiman
#41. When things get tough, this is what you should do: Make good art. I'm serious. Husband runs off with a politician - make good art. Leg crushed and then eaten by a mutated boa constrictor - make good art. IRS on your trail - make good art. Cat exploded - make good art. Someone on the Internet thinks what you're doing is stupid or evil or it's all been done before - make good art. Probably things will work out somehow, eventually time will take the sting away, and that doesn't even matter. Do what only you can do best: Make good art. Make it on the bad days, make it on the good days, too. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Quidley Art quotes by Reggie Watts
#42. I mean, the type of art that I enjoy is art that - I enjoy a very broad spectrum, but I especially like art that leaves me a little confused and uncertain as to what just happened. #Quote by Reggie Watts
Quidley Art quotes by Antony Gormley
#43. Maybe this is a utopian view of art but I do believe that art can function as a vehicle, that it isn't just a cultural pursuit, something that happens in art galleries. Unless art is linked to experience and the fear and joy of that, it becomes mere icing on the cake. #Quote by Antony Gormley
Quidley Art quotes by Art Hochberg
#44. What you experience is your reality, for the time being anyway. It's a mind-blower because, at a certain level of awareness, that's not real either. #Quote by Art Hochberg
Quidley Art quotes by Finley Peter Dunne
#45. High finance isn't burglary or obtaining money by false pretenses, but rather a judicious selection from the best features of those fine arts. #Quote by Finley Peter Dunne
Quidley Art quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#46. After painting comes Sculpture, a very noble art, but one that does not in the execution require the same supreme ingenuity as the art of painting, since in two most important and difficult particulars, in foreshortening and in light and shade, for which the painter has to invent a process, sculpture is helped by nature. Moreover, Sculpture does not imitate color which the painter takes pains to attune so that the shadows accompany the lights. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
