Inspirational Quotes about Art

"Reason is powerless in the expression of Love." Rumi

"What is art without struggle." Byron Pulsifer

"Going back to zero can help creative juices no matter the art form you are attempting to create." Byron Pulsifer

"You can't create in a vacuum. Life gives you the material and dreams can propel new beginnings." Byron Pulsifer

"There's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it." Henry Moore

Now we have a sort of democratic version of that, which is to say that the audience is so splintered in its interests.David Cronenberg
- 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
