A fool's brain digests philosophy into folly, science into superstition, and art into pedantry. Hence University education.
George Bernard Shaw
A man that has a taste of music, painting, or architecture, is like one that has another sense, when compared with such as have no relish of those arts
Joseph Addison
A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.
Albert Camus
A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.
Abraham Maslow
A poet is a bird of unearthly excellence, who escapes from his celestial realm arrives in this world warbling. If we do not cherish him, he spreads his wings and flies back into his homeland.
Kahlil Gibran
A verbal art like poetry is reflective; it stops to think. Music is immediate, it goes on to become.
W. H. Auden
A writer or painter cannot change the world. But they can keep an essential margin of nonconformity alive.
Luis Bu˝uel
Above all, we are coming to understand that the arts incarnate the creativity of a free people. When the creative impulse cannot flourish, when it cannot freely select its methods and objects, when it is deprived of spontaneity, then society severs
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
All art is quite useless.
Oscar Wilde
All good art is an indiscretion
Tennessee Williams
All humanity is passion; without passion, religion, history, novels, art would be ineffectual.
Honore de Balzac
All nature is but art unknown to thee.
Alexander Pope
All nature is but art, unknown to thee; All chance, direction, which thou canst not see; All discord, harmony not understood; All partial evil, universal good; And spite of pride, in erring reason's spite, One truth is clear, Whatever is, is right
Alexander Pope
All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.
Albert Einstein
All that is good in art is the expression of one soul talking to another; and is precious according to the greatness of the soul that utters it
John Ruskin
All that we call spirit and art and ecstacy only means that for one awful instant we remember that we forgot.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
An artist cannot speak about his art any more than a plant can discuss horticulture.
Jean Cocteau
An artist is a man of action, whether he creates a personality, invents an expedient, or finds the issue of a complicated situation
Joseph Conrad
An artist is never ahead of his time but most people are far behind theirs.
Edgard Varese
An artist is only an ordinary man with a greater potentiality--same stuff, same make up, only more force. And the strong driving force usually finds his weak spot, and he goes cranked, or goes under.
D.H. Lawrence
