The more I think it over, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.
One of my biggest heroes in music has been David Bowie. He's said, 'I'm going to be a painter now, or I'm going to do some films,' and his audience is very forgiving, because they understand him as an artist. Whether you agree or like the result, you respect that he's expressing his Artistic feelings.maynard james keenan
Artistic growth is, more than it is anything else, a refining of the sense of truthfulness.Willa Sibert Cather
Derivative writers seem versatile because they imitate many others, past and present. Artistic originality has only itself to copy.vladimir nabokov
Chris has a very penetrating and unique Artistic vision that, when melded with ours, makes for a unique band chemistry. It's such a different vibe than any of us has ever experienced before. There's a great deal of camaraderie.chris cornell
My parents were very supportive of me and my Artistic endeavours. My father and mother came to every school play I ever did.Jack Black
Artistic, with high sensitivity and imagination, Anna-Maria managed the difficult program.
The philosophic spirit of inquiry may be traced to brute curiosity, and that to the habit of examining all things in search of food. Artistic genius is an expansion of monkey imitativeness.william winwood reade
There exists a great chasm between those, on one side, who relate everything to a single central vision ... and, on the other side, those who pursue many ends, often unrelated and even contradictory ... The first kind of intellectual and Artistic personality belongs to the hedgehogs, the second to the foxes.isaiah berlin
Art, it seems to me, should simplify. That, indeed, is very nearly the whole of the higher Artistic process; finding what conventions of form and what detail one can do without and yet preserve the spirit of the whole — so that all that one has suppressed and cut away is there to the reader's consciousness as much as if it were in type on the page.willa cather
n Artistic atmosphere does not create artists a literary atmosphere does not create literators; poets and painters spring up where there was never a verse made or a picture seen. This suggests that God is no more idle now than He was at the beginning, but that He is still and forever shaping the human chaos into the instruments and means of beauty.william dean howells
Reticence may be an elderly doctrine to preach, yet from the Artistic point of view I am sure it is a sound one. Reticence conduces to effect, blatancy ruins it.m. r. james
For now, I'm supposing that all movements are equal, which they're not, except in this respect: that none of them gives a damn about artists beyond their immediate utility. Good movements will use a writer just as ruthlessly as bad ones; since they all fancy they have better things to do than worry about one man's Artistic survival.wilfrid sheed
I regard the writing of humor as a supreme Artistic challenge.herman wouk
The perfect detective story cannot be written. The type of mind which can evolve the perfect problem is not the type of mind that can produce the Artistic job of writing.Raymond Chandler
It is, of course, a common prejudice that censorship is bad for art and therefore always unjustified: though, if this were so, mankind would have little in the way of an Artistic heritage and we should now be living in an Artistic golden age.anthony daniels
The arts alone give direct access to experience. To eliminate them from education - or worse, to tolerate them as cultural ornaments - is antieducational obscurantism. It is foisted on us by the pedants and snobs of Hellenistic Greece who considered Artistic performance fit only for slaves...Peter Drucker
A work of art is only of interest, in my opinion, when it is an immediate and direct projection of what is happening in the depth of a person’s being.. ..It is my belief that only in this Art Brut can we find the natural and normal processes of Artistic creation in their pure and elementary state.jean dubuffet
This is not an objective, historical or psychological evaluation of Danish experimental art and its historical roots, but an ideological and Artistic, collective representation of our own work, thoughts, and ideas. It shows how we ourselves view our work and our way of working, and considers which of the many traditions that make up our foundation we feel connected to.asger jorn
The reverse process is extremely important to me that Artistic images can inspire to words and different myths, and that in certain cultures this process has been the normal relation between images and words. It is known as a rule in the so-called Germanic art, and through the middle ages heaps of such stories are directly inspired by fantastic images.asger jorn
Ambitious young women today are taught to ignore or suppress every natural instinct, if it conflicts with the feminist agenda posed on them. All literary and Artistic works, no matter how great, that document the ambivalence of female sexuality they are trained to dismiss as “misogynous.” In other words, their minds are being programmed to secede from their bodies … there is a huge gap between feminist rhetoric and women’s actual sex lives, where feminism is of little help except with a certain stratum of deferential, malleable, white middle-class men.camille paglia
Without once compromising his Artistic integrity, Fellini imagined a body of work -- as opposed to a suite of spin-offs, remakes, potboilers and so on -- where each production can be ranked as among the finest of experimental films ever to reach and influence an international public. There is a breathtaking scope to that achievement and great courage in the process: surmounting unbelievable resistance from producers, enemies of all kinds and jealous colleagues, career reversals, and poor health, Fellini held true to his own vision of cinema forged in the smithy of his soul.damian pettigrew
It seems to me now that mathematics is capable of an Artistic excellence as great as that of any music, perhaps greater; not because the pleasure it gives (although very pure) is comparable, either in intensity or in the number of people who feel it, to that of music, but because it gives in absolute perfection that combination, characteristic of great art, of godlike freedom, with the sense of inevitable destiny; because, in fact, it constructs an ideal world where everything is perfect and yet true.bertrand russell
Traditional Chinese characters carry both cultural significance and Artistic values and promoting these characters has nothing to do with any political stance. It's very important for us not to sacrifice the characters for tourism.
...the traditional order of the Bharata Natyam recital viz., Alarippu , Jatiswaram , Sabdane , Varnam, Padams, Tillana and the Slokas is the correct sequence in the practice of this art, which an Artistic Yoga , for revealing the spiritual through the corporeal.
[This] refined dance form became and remains perceived as the form that ‘encapsulates the phenomenon and depth of the spiritual and Artistic heritage of India'.
