I have been no more than a medium, as it were.
Henri Matisse

I have offended God and mankind because my work didn't reach the quality it should have.

The Critic as Artist.

It is well with me when only when I have a chisel in my hand.

It requires a certain kind of mind to see beauty in a hamburger bun. Yet, is it any more unusual to find grace in the texture and softly curved silhouette of a bun than to reflect lovingly on . . . the arrangement of textures and colors in a butterfly's wing?
Ray Kroc

Let it be enough for you to have bread and live virtuously and poorly like Christ, as I do here. I live meanly and don't bother about life or honor... and I live with the greatest toil and a thousand worries. It is now about 15 years since I had a happy hour.

Groucho Marx

Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term art, I should call it "the Reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature through the veil of the mist."
Edgar Allan Poe

What a great artist dies with me.

What do you think an artist is? An imbecile who only has eyes if he's a painter, ears if he's a musician, or a lyre in every chamber of his heart if he's a poet or even, if he's a boxer, only some muscles?

What was any art but a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself - life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose.
Willa Cather

When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it - a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand - as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there's a clash between the two, it's bad art.
Marc Chagall

When I was a child, my mother said to me, "If you become a soldier, you'll be a general; if you become a monk, you'll end up as the Pope." Instead, I became a painter, and wound up Picasso.

E. M. Forster

You do something, and then somebody else comes along and does it pretty.
Pablo Picasso
