Art Life Dark Light

Art is only a means to life, to the life
more abundant. It is not in itself
the life more abundant.

Henry Miller

Every artist was first an amateur.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

What garlic is to salad, insanity is to art. 

Augustus Saint-Gaudens

Art at its most significant is a distant
early warning system that can always
be relied on to tell the old culture
what is beginning to happen.

Marshall Mcluhan

    Artists to my mind are the real architects
of change, and not the political legislators
who implement change after the fact.

William S. Burroughs

An artist is someone who produces things
that people don't need to have but that
he - for some reason - thinks it would
be a good idea to give them.

  Andy Warhol

The defining function of the artist
is to cherish consciousness.

Max Eastman

The primary distinction of the artist
is that he must actively cultivate
that state which most men,
necessarily, must avoid: the state
of being alone.

James Baldwin

Art is a form of catharsis.

Dorothy Parker

To speak of morals in art is to speak
of legislature in sex. Art is the sex
of the imagination.

George Jean Nathan

We have art in order not to die
of the truth.

Friedrich Nietzsche

What is art but a way of seeing?
Thomas Berger
