Man will begin to recover the moment he takes art as seriously as physics, chemistry or money.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Imagination rules the world.
Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.
If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.
Life is short, art is long...
The role of the artist is to ask questions, not answer them.
If we, citizens, do not support our artists, then we sacrifice our imagination on the altar of crude reality and we end up believing in nothing...
Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music
William Edgar Stafford
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
Our brains are organized by stories and images, not statistics.
We don't make mistakes, just happy little accidents.
Creativity takes courage.
