Words on Art
German writer Johann Wolfgang Goethe
"We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth."
Pablo Picasso, (The Arts, Picasso Speaks, 1923)
"Poetry is that which is lost in translation."
American poet Robert Frost
"[British author] Dorothy L. Sayers complained that people would ask in wonder how it was that she, a female writer, could write conversations between males that sounded so realistic. Her retort was that she simply assumed that men, when alone with each other, would talk like people."
US editor Dorothy J. Heydt
"Art is the make-up that we apply to the face of Life, or the cream we use with which to remove it; it all depends on what the artist sees when he or she looks into their own mirror."
Ali Yildirim (read more quotes)
