Life beats down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one.
We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.
Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
The primary purpose of practising any art, whether well or badly, is that it enables one’s soul to grow.
–Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
–George Bernard Shaw
The creation of a work of art, like an act of love, is our one small “yes” at the center of a vast “no”.
