No one thing can explain everything; though everything can illuminate something. God, I must be still drunk. If God were anything he would be an art. Sculpture or medicine. But the immense extension of knowledge in this our age, the growth of new sciences, makes it almost impossible for us to digest the available flavours and put them to use.Lawrence Durrell Age And Art Sayings By Lawrence Durrell: No one thing can explain everything; though everything can illuminate something. God, I must be
As I've said before, "the Mod generation", contrary to popular belief, was not born in even 1958, but in the 1920s after a steady gestation from about 1917 or so. Now, Mod certainly came of age, fully sure of itself by 1958, completely misunderstood by 1963, and in a perpetual cycle of reinvention and rediscovery of itself by 1967 and 1975, respectively, but it was born in the 1920s, and I will maintain this. I don't care who disagrees with me, and there are dozens of reasons that I do so - from the Art Deco aesthetic, to flapper fashions (complete with bobbed hair), to androgyny and subtle effeminacy, to jazz.Ruadhan J. McElroy Age And Art Sayings By Ruadhan J. McElroy: As I've said before, "the Mod generation", contrary to popular belief, was not born in
In public buildings set aside for the care and maintenance of the goods of the middle ages, a staff of civil service art attendants praise all the dead, irrelevant scribblings and scrawlings that, at best, have only historical interest for idiots and layabouts.George Grosz Age And Art Sayings By George Grosz: In public buildings set aside for the care and maintenance of the goods of the
The science of Contrology disproves that prevalent and
all-too-trite saying; 'You're only as old as you feel.' The art
of Contrology proves that the only real guide to your true age lies
not in years or how you THINK you feel but as you ACTUALLY are
as infallibly indicated by the degree of natural and normalflexibility
enjoyed by your spine throughout life.
Joseph Pilates Age And Art Sayings By Joseph Pilates: The science of Contrology disproves that prevalent and all-too-trite saying; 'You're only as old as
In youth, love and art. In age, investments and antiques.Mason Cooley Age And Art Sayings By Mason Cooley: In youth, love and art. In age, investments and antiques.
We were so awkward, morning pimples in the mirror, hair where we never wanted it, and we thought of the lung cancer X-ray that was the album art for Surfin' Safari, considered the ways a body betrays its soul, and wondered if growing up was its own kind of pathology. We fell in and out of love with fevered frequency. We constantly became people we would later regret having been.Anthony Marra Age And Art Sayings By Anthony Marra: We were so awkward, morning pimples in the mirror, hair where we never wanted it,
Monday ushers in a particularly impressive clientele of red-eyed people properly pressed into dry-cleaned suits in neutral tones. They leave their equally well-buttoned children idling in SUVs while dashing to grab double-Americanos and foamy sweet lattes, before click-clacking hasty escapes in ass-sculpting heels and polished loafers with bowl-shaped haircuts that age every face to 40. My imagination speed evolves their unfortunate offspring from car seat-strapped oxygen-starved fast-blooming locusts, to the knuckle-drag harried downtown troglodytes they'll inevitably become. One by one I capture their flat-formed heads between index finger and thumb for a little crush-crush-crushing, ever aware that if I'm lucky one day their charitable contributions will fund my frown-faced found art project to baffle someone's hallway.Amanda Sledz Age And Art Sayings By Amanda Sledz: Monday ushers in a particularly impressive clientele of red-eyed people properly pressed into dry-cleaned suits
I can truthfully say, in arts I have pretty much seen and done it all and, at my age, I have no patience with wide-eyed artists fooling themselves about their place in history. We should know by now that it is the whim of the elite few who set the rules ... those who have fooled themselves into believing that they are God's gift to the ages.Donald Lambert Age And Art Sayings By Donald Lambert: I can truthfully say, in arts I have pretty much seen and done it all
Ah!' said Michel, tempted, 'you have modern poems?'
'Of course. For instance, Martillac's 'Electric Harmonies,' which won a prize last year from the Academic of Sciences, and Monsieur de Pulfasse's 'Meditations on Oxygen;' and we have the 'Poetic Parallelogram,' and even the 'Decarbonated Odes ... '
Michel couldn't bear hearing another word and found himself outside again, stupefied and overcome. Not even this tiny amount of art had escaped the pernicious influence of the age! Science, Chemistry, Mechanics had invaded the realm of poetry! 'And such things are read,' he murmured as he hurried through the streets, ' perhaps even bought! And signed by the authors and placed on the shelves marked 'Literature.' But not one copy of Balzac, not one work by Victor Hugo! Where can I find such things-where, if not the Library ...
Jules Verne Age And Art Sayings By Jules Verne: Ah!' said Michel, tempted, 'you have modern poems?' 'Of course. For instance, Martillac's 'Electric Harmonies,'
Too much thought is bad for the soul, for art, and for crime. It is also a sign of middle age.Patrick Hamilton Age And Art Sayings By Patrick Hamilton: Too much thought is bad for the soul, for art, and for crime. It is
I think something happens with age. And I find this really a lot in what I read from certain art critics: For people who are all about change-people who are supposed to be intellectually and culturally drawn to the idea of change and how the voice of a creative person affects the world on a bigger scale than just the canvas-I would expect a person in that position to have that open mind. It's only a sign of age that they become so locked in their own rules that they forget that this is what it's all about.Marc Jacobs Age And Art Sayings By Marc Jacobs: I think something happens with age. And I find this really a lot in what
One day after the exams, the teachers sat at their desks correcting papers while the pupils read comics, played chess or cards or talked quietly in groups. Coulter at a desk in front of Thaw turned round and said, "What are ye reading?"
Thaw showed a book of critical essays on art and literature.
Coulter said accusingly, "You don't read that for fun."
"Yes, I read it for fun."
"People our age don't read that sort of book for fun. They read it to show they're superior."
"But I read this sort of book even when there's nobody around to see me."
"That shows you arenae trying to make us think you're superior, you're trying to make yourself think you're superior.
Alasdair Gray Age And Art Sayings By Alasdair Gray: One day after the exams, the teachers sat at their desks correcting papers while the
I felt the strange brooding lonely presence of Nature fostering a new race, a new age, and as part of it, a new expression in Art. It was an unfolding of the heart itself through the effect of environment, of people, of place, and time.Lawren Harris Age And Art Sayings By Lawren Harris: I felt the strange brooding lonely presence of Nature fostering a new race, a new
Inside" Children
Inside each of us are the children we were at each developmental stage.
With regard to our creative dreams, these inside children can prevent us from living them by "acting out" in order to try to get our attention. Your inner 5-year-old is not going to patiently wait as you learn intricate metalworking techniques or study impressionist painting. Yet, your inner 10-year-old may be perfectly suited to learn and observe new skills.
What's really needed is parenting of these inside children so that we bring them to age-appropriate activities.
SARK Age And Art Sayings By SARK: Inside" ChildrenInside each of us are the children we were at each developmental stage. With
Nietzsche called the ear "the organ of fear," and believed that the sense of hearing "could have evolved as greatly as it has only in the night and twilight of obscure caves and woods, in accordance with the mode of life in the age of timidity, that is to say the longest human age there has been: in bright daylight the ear is less necessary. That is how music acquired the character of an art of night and twilight.Ben Macintyre Age And Art Sayings By Ben Macintyre: Nietzsche called the ear "the organ of fear," and believed that the sense of hearing
Nations in their great ages have not been great in art or science, but in art and science.Jacob Bronowski Age And Art Sayings By Jacob Bronowski: Nations in their great ages have not been great in art or science, but in
An educational foundation is only part of the equation. In order for creativity to flourish and imagination to take hold, we also need to expose our children to the arts from a very young age.Michelle Obama Age And Art Sayings By Michelle Obama: An educational foundation is only part of the equation. In order for creativity to flourish
Ingenious to their ruin, every age improves the art and instruments of rage.Edmund Waller Age And Art Sayings By Edmund Waller: Ingenious to their ruin, every age improves the art and instruments of rage.
But really, it was reading that led me to writing. And in particular, reading the American classics like Twain who taught me at an early age that ordinary lives of ordinary people can be made into high art.Russell Banks Age And Art Sayings By Russell Banks: But really, it was reading that led me to writing. And in particular, reading the
Clyde Phillip Wachsberger's delightful memoir about tending beds of flowers as compensation for a lonely middle age only to find unexpected romance along the way is a sweet reminder that, as he puts it, 'anything can happen in a garden.' In prose that balances candor with perfect courtesy, he charms us with the message that keeping a garden with a beloved companion, this most ephemeral of all the arts, can bring us the most enduring joys and pleasures.Philip Gambone Age And Art Sayings By Philip Gambone: Clyde Phillip Wachsberger's delightful memoir about tending beds of flowers as compensation for a lonely
Fools, art is a heavy task, more heavy than gold crowns; it's far more difficult to match firm words than armies, they're disciplined troops, unconquered, to be placed in rhythm, the mind's most mighty foe, and not disperse in air. I'd give, believe me, a whole land for one good song, for I know well that only words, that words alone, like the high mountains, have no fear of age or death.Nikos Kazantzakis Age And Art Sayings By Nikos Kazantzakis: Fools, art is a heavy task, more heavy than gold crowns; it's far more difficult
The next time you feel yourself giving in to the sometimes overwhelming urge to panic about the fate of literature in the digital age, follow this simple remedy: remember that you dream. For that is ironclad proof ... that literature - that narrative art in whatever form - will never die. Humans, strange creatures that we are, make sense of our lives by telling stories. In the space between each day and the next, we refresh our minds by concocting the most fantastic and elaborate fictions. We spend roughly a third of our lives thus, re-arranging our scattered experiences into stories. That we do it at all is bizarre and inexplicable. But as long as we do it, we will crave stories - human stories, stories that speak to us - in our waking life. The Internet, powerful as it is, cannot change that.Adam Hammond Age And Art Sayings By Adam Hammond: The next time you feel yourself giving in to the sometimes overwhelming urge to panic
From History to Chance
The river of time was flowing on its way, and I was swimming over its honey coloured surface with eyes closed. Does time move? It's debatable. But we definitely move, age to age, with time and away from it, from its unmoving faces. To see its new faces. In its widest, longest and strangest art gallery.
Jamaluddin Jamali Age And Art Sayings By Jamaluddin Jamali: From History to ChanceThe river of time was flowing on its way, and I was
The 1960s was a heroic age in the history of the art of communication - the audacious movers and shakers of those times bear no resemblance to the cast of characters in 'Mad Men.'George Lois Age And Art Sayings By George Lois: The 1960s was a heroic age in the history of the art of communication -
My father came to Chennai at the age of 16 from a village in Coimbatore. He was an artist and was clear he wanted to do something, so he came to Chennai and joined an art course for eight years before he came into films.Suriya Age And Art Sayings By Suriya: My father came to Chennai at the age of 16 from a village in Coimbatore.
I expect to see the coming decades transform the planet into an art form; the new man, linked in a cosmic harmony that transcends time and space, will sensuously caress and mold and pattern every facet of the terrestrial artifact as if it were a work of art, and man himself will become an organic art form. There is a long road ahead, and the stars are only way stations, but we have begun the journey. To be born in this age is a precious gift, and I regret the prospect of my own death only because I will leave so many pages of man's destiny - if you will excuse the Gutenbergian image - tantalizingly unread. But perhaps, as I've tried to demonstrate in my examination of the postliterate culture, the story begins only when the book closes.Marshall McLuhan Age And Art Sayings By Marshall McLuhan: I expect to see the coming decades transform the planet into an art form; the
Cyril: surely you would acknowledge that art expresses the temper of its age, the spirit of its time, the moral and social conditions that surround it, and under whose influence it is produced.
Vivian: Certainly not! art never expresses anything but itself. This is the principle of my new aesthetics; and it is this, more than that vital connection between form and substance
Oscar Wilde Age And Art Sayings By Oscar Wilde: Cyril: surely you would acknowledge that art expresses the temper of its age, the spirit
They were both young men under thirty. Art is not so precocious as literature, and does not send quite so many early potatoes into the market, so that the age of thirty is considered young enough for a painter to have learnt his business sufficiently to be marketable from the picture-dealing point of view. ("The Phantom Model")Hume Nisbet Age And Art Sayings By Hume Nisbet: They were both young men under thirty. Art is not so precocious as literature, and
Popular culture is the new Babylon, into which so much art and intellect now flow. It is our imperial sex theater, supreme temple of the western eye. We live in the age of idols. The pagan past, never dead, flames again in our mystic hierarchies of stardom.Camille Paglia Age And Art Sayings By Camille Paglia: Popular culture is the new Babylon, into which so much art and intellect now flow.
Aristotle is the last Greek philosopher who faces the world cheerfully; after him, all have, in one form or another, a philosophy of retreat. The world is bad; let us learn to be independent of it. External goods are precarious; they are the gift of fortune, not the reward of our own efforts. Only subjective goods - virtue, or contentment through resignation - are secure, and these alone, therefore, will be valued by the wise man. Diogenes personally was a man full of vigour, but his doctrine, like all those of the Hellenistic age, was one to appeal to weary men, in whom disappointment had destroyed natural zest. And it was certainly not a doctrine calculated to promote art or science or statesmanship, or any useful activity except one of protest against powerful evil.Anonymous Age And Art Sayings By Anonymous: Aristotle is the last Greek philosopher who faces the world cheerfully; after him, all have,
I certainly know guys in comedy, I know some actors, and I definitely know some musicians, who have survived to a certain age and make a good living doing what they do, but nobody knows who they are. They wake up every day and they have the ability to get paid practicing their art, but underneath it all, if you scratched the surface, you still get, "If I only had my own show ... ," or "If I only had my own band ... " It's what people always do when they want to be their own star.Denis Leary Age And Art Sayings By Denis Leary: I certainly know guys in comedy, I know some actors, and I definitely know some
But this graveyard of dead books doesn't unnerve me. It reminds me that I had a deeper motive, one that only the approach of old age and death has unlocked. I wrote to answer questions I had - the motive of all art, whatever its ostensible subject. There were things I urgently needed to know.James Atlas Age And Art Sayings By James Atlas: But this graveyard of dead books doesn't unnerve me. It reminds me that I had
Looking at things is never time wasted. If your children want to stand and stare, let them. When I was marvelling at the beauty of a painting or enjoying a great view it did not occur to me that the experience, however intense, would be of value many years later. But there it has remained, tucked away in hidden bits of my mind and now it comes, shouldering aside even the most passionate love affairs.Diana Athill Age And Art Sayings By Diana Athill: Looking at things is never time wasted. If your children want to stand and stare,
Actors tend to get better with age. You start cutting away the useless stuff and achieving a point of effortlessness and simplicity, which is all you want to do, with any art at all.James Purefoy Age And Art Sayings By James Purefoy: Actors tend to get better with age. You start cutting away the useless stuff and
Every school boy and school girl who has arrived at the age of reflection ought to know something about the history of the art of printing.Horace Mann Age And Art Sayings By Horace Mann: Every school boy and school girl who has arrived at the age of reflection ought
In this media-drenched, data-rich, channel-surfing, computer-gaming age, we have lost the art of doing nothing, of shutting out the background noise and distractions, of slowing down and simply being alone with our thoughts.Carl Honore Age And Art Sayings By Carl Honore: In this media-drenched, data-rich, channel-surfing, computer-gaming age, we have lost the art of doing nothing,
The industrial age is ending, and a new one is beginning. It produces art instead of stuff and it rewards gracefulness.Seth Godin Age And Art Sayings By Seth Godin: The industrial age is ending, and a new one is beginning. It produces art instead
In my previous murals, I had tried to achieve a harmony in my painting with the architecture of the building. But to attempt such a harmony in the garden of the Institute would have defeated my purposes. For the walls here were of an intricate Italian baroque style, with little windows, heads of satyrs, doorways, and sculpturesque mouldings. It was within such a frame that I was to represent the life of an age which had nothing to do with baroque refinements
a new life which was characterized by masses, machines, and naked mechanical power. So I set to work consciously to over-power the ornamentation of the room.
Diego Rivera Age And Art Sayings By Diego Rivera: In my previous murals, I had tried to achieve a harmony in my painting with
This household happiness did not come all at once, but John and Meg had found the key to it, and each year of married life taught them how to use it, unlocking the treasuries of real home love and mutual helpfulness, which the poorest may possess, and the richest cannot buy. This is the sort of shelf on which young wives and mothers may consent to be laid, safe from the restless fret and fever of the world, finding loyal lovers in the little sons and daughters who cling to them, undaunted by sorrow, poverty, or age, walking side by side, through fair and stormy weather, with a faithful friend, who is, in the true sense of the good old Saxon word, the 'house-band,' and learning, as Meg learned, that a woman's happiest kingdom is home, her highest honor the art of ruling it not as a queen, but as a wise wife and mother.Louisa May Alcott Age And Art Sayings By Louisa May Alcott: This household happiness did not come all at once, but John and Meg had found
Pre-Raphaelites they called themselves; not that they imitated the early Italian masters at all, but that in their work, as opposed to the facile abstractions of Raphael, they found a stronger realism of imagination, a more careful realism of technique, a vision at once more fervent and more vivid, an individuality more intimate and more intense. For it is not enough that a work of art should conform to the aesthetic demands of its age: there must be also about it, if it is to affect us with any permanent delight, the impress of a distinct individuality, an individuality remote from that of ordinary men, and coming near to us only by virtue of a certain newness and wonder in the work, and through channels whose very strangeness makes us more ready to give them welcome.Oscar Wilde Age And Art Sayings By Oscar Wilde: Pre-Raphaelites they called themselves; not that they imitated the early Italian masters at all, but
In an age that seems to be increasingly dehumanized, when people can be transformed into non-persons, and where a great deal of our adult art seems to diminish our lives rather than add to them, children's literature insists on the values of humanity and humaneness.Lloyd Alexander Age And Art Sayings By Lloyd Alexander: In an age that seems to be increasingly dehumanized, when people can be transformed into
Art-making was part of my daily life from a very young age, and I still love that kind of everyday art-making.Eula Biss Age And Art Sayings By Eula Biss: Art-making was part of my daily life from a very young age, and I still
Of all intellectual friendships, none are so beautiful as those which subsist between old and ripe men and their younger brethren in science or literature or art. It is, by these private friendships, even more than by public performance, that the tradition of sound thinking and great doing is perpetuated from age to age.Philip Gilbert Hamerton Age And Art Sayings By Philip Gilbert Hamerton: Of all intellectual friendships, none are so beautiful as those which subsist between old and
Poets are not so scrupulous as you are. They know how useful passion is for publication. Nowadays a broken heart will run to many editions."
"I hate them for it," cried Hallward. "An artist should create beautiful things, but should put nothing of his own life into them. We live in an age when men treat art as if it were meant to be a form of autobiography. We have lost the abstract sense of beauty. Some day I will show the world what is it; and for that the world shall never see my portrait of Dorian Gray.
Oscar Wilde Age And Art Sayings By Oscar Wilde: Poets are not so scrupulous as you are. They know how useful passion is for
What is more natural in a democratic age than that we should begin to measure the stature of a work of art-especially of a painting-by how widely and how well it is reproduced?Daniel J. Boorstin Age And Art Sayings By Daniel J. Boorstin: What is more natural in a democratic age than that we should begin to measure
I believe that we, that this planet, hasn't seen its Golden Age. Everybody says its finished ... art's finished, rock and roll is dead, God is dead. Fuck that! This is my chance in the world. I didn't live back there in Mesopotamia, I wasn't there in the Garden of Eden, I wasn't there with Emperor Han, I'm right here right now and I want now to be the Golden Age ... if only each generation would realise that the time for greatness is right now when they're alive ... the time to flower is now.Patti Smith Age And Art Sayings By Patti Smith: I believe that we, that this planet, hasn't seen its Golden Age. Everybody says its
Thou fool! Nature alone is antique, and the oldest art a mushroom; that idle crag thou sittest on is six thousand years of age.Thomas Carlyle Age And Art Sayings By Thomas Carlyle: Thou fool! Nature alone is antique, and the oldest art a mushroom; that idle crag
While guns rumbled in the distance, we sang, painted, made collages and wrote poems with all our might. We were seeking an art based on fundamentals, to cure the madness of the age, and find a new order of things that would restore the balance between heaven and hell.Hans Arp Age And Art Sayings By Hans Arp: While guns rumbled in the distance, we sang, painted, made collages and wrote poems with
Helen's era was quite different from what most people think of when they hear the words ancient Greece. The Parthenon, the graceful statues, the works of Sophocles, Euripides, Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato, all came nearly a thousand years after Helen's time, during the classical era. In the Bronze Age, no one yet knew how to make brittle iron flexible enough to use for tools and weapons. Art, especially sculpture of the human form, was stiffer and more stylized. Few people could read or write. Instead of signing important papers, you would use a stone seal to leave an impression on clay tablets. The design on the seal would be as unique as a signature. There was a kind of writing in Bronze Age Greece, but it was mostly used to keep track of financial matters, such as royal tax records. Messages, poems, songs, and stories were not written down but were memorized and passed along by word of mouth.Esther M. Friesner Age And Art Sayings By Esther M. Friesner: Helen's era was quite different from what most people think of when they hear the
Whatever this is that I am, it is a little flesh and breath, and the ruling part. Throw away thy books; no longer distract thyself: it is not allowed; but as if thou wast now dying, despise the flesh; it is blood and bones and a network, a contexture of nerves, veins, and arteries. See the breath also, what kind of a thing it is, air, and not always the same, but every moment sent out and again sucked in. The third then is the ruling part: consider thus: Thou art an old man; no longer let this be a slave, no longer be pulled by the strings like a puppet to unsocial movements, no longer be either dissatisfied with thy present lot, or shrink from the future.Marcus Aurelius Age And Art Sayings By Marcus Aurelius: Whatever this is that I am, it is a little flesh and breath, and the
Just as in the second part of a verse bad poets seek a thought to fit their rhyme, so in the second half of their lives people tend to become more anxious about finding actions, positions, relationships that fit those of their earlier lives, so that everything harmonizes quite well on the surface: but their lives are no longer ruled by a strong thought, and instead, in its place, comes the intention of finding a rhyme.Friedrich Nietzsche Age And Art Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: Just as in the second part of a verse bad poets seek a thought to
She grew up hard and she grew up fast, in the age of television.Tom Petty Age And Art Sayings By Tom Petty: She grew up hard and she grew up fast, in the age of television.
Just as experience dictates to the ballet teacher the length of time necessary to train his students, so the horse, too, needs time to mature into a great four legged dancer. This fact cannot be obliterated by seeming successes that supposedly prove the opposite. For, even if someone should succeed in training a horse to high school level by the age of eight, this individual occurrence cannot shake the foundations of the classical art of riding, if this dressage horse is completely unsound and unusable by the age of ten.Alois Podhajsky Age And Art Sayings By Alois Podhajsky: Just as experience dictates to the ballet teacher the length of time necessary to train
I have always been making art from an early age but for nearly forty years did computer programming to earn a living. I bought a house and put my wife and three children through college. Now that diversion is over so I can finally paint full time.Mike Thompson Age And Art Sayings By Mike Thompson: I have always been making art from an early age but for nearly forty years
Autonomy, adventure, imagination: entrepreneurshi p comprehends all this and more for us. The characteristic art form of our age may be the business plan.William Deresiewicz Age And Art Sayings By William Deresiewicz: Autonomy, adventure, imagination: entrepreneurshi p comprehends all this and more for us. The characteristic art
Rare and powerful harmonies exist,
Shaping both scent and contour in a flower.
Thus brilliance lies unseen by us until,
Beneath the chisel, it blazes in the diamond.
And thus do images of fleeting vision,
Drifting above like cloud-forms in the sky,
Once turned to stone live on from age to age,
Held always in a faultless, polished phrase.
("A Sonnet To Form")
Valery Bryusov Age And Art Sayings By Valery Bryusov: Rare and powerful harmonies exist,Shaping both scent and contour in a flower.Thus brilliance lies unseen
So age after age - will it be soon, O Lord? -

Beneath the scalpel of nature and art,

Our spirit screams, our flesh depletes itself,

Giving birth to an organ for the sixth sense.

("The Sixth Sense")
Nikolay S. Gumilev Age And Art Sayings By Nikolay S. Gumilev: So age after age - will it be soon, O Lord? - Beneath the scalpel
For me, where genre ends and literature begins doesn't matter. What matters is whether a given novel hits me with high impact. If it does, it probably is fulfilling the purpose of fiction. It has drawn me into a story world, held me captive, taken me on a journey with characters like none I've ever met, revealed truths I've somehow always known and insights that rock my brain. It's filled me with awe, which is to say it's made me see the familiar in a wholly new way and made the unfamiliar a foundational part of me. It both entertains and matters. It both captures our age and becomes timelessly great. It does all that with the sturdy tools of story and the flair of narrative art.Donald Maass Age And Art Sayings By Donald Maass: For me, where genre ends and literature begins doesn't matter. What matters is whether a
The realm of classical music is so vast - not only in terms of style but of era, age and the purposes for which it was composed - it is an enormous art form.David Finckel Age And Art Sayings By David Finckel: The realm of classical music is so vast - not only in terms of style
An artist cannot get along without a public; and when the public is absent, what does he do? He invents it, and turning his back on his age, he looks toward the future for what the present denies.Andre Gide Age And Art Sayings By Andre Gide: An artist cannot get along without a public; and when the public is absent, what
Art and science coincide insofar as both aim to improve the lives of men and women. The latter normally concerns itself with profit, the former with pleasure. In the coming age, art will fashion our entertainment out of new means of productivity in ways that will simultaneously enhance our profit and maximize our pleasure.Bertolt Brecht Age And Art Sayings By Bertolt Brecht: Art and science coincide insofar as both aim to improve the lives of men and
It would be difficult, in this day and age, to fund art that made racial slurs.Jane Alexander Age And Art Sayings By Jane Alexander: It would be difficult, in this day and age, to fund art that made racial
I never decided to become an art forger. I was aware of my talent at an early age, and I used it foolishly. This developed over the years. In my heart, I don't see myself as a criminal.Wolfgang Beltracchi Age And Art Sayings By Wolfgang Beltracchi: I never decided to become an art forger. I was aware of my talent at
In the Somme valley, the back of language broke. It could no longer carry its former meanings. World War I changed the life of words and images in art, radically and forever. It brought our culture into the age of mass-produced, industrialized death. This, at first, was indescribable.Robert Hughes Age And Art Sayings By Robert Hughes: In the Somme valley, the back of language broke. It could no longer carry its
[On art:] I believe that it not only enriches the spiritual life, but that it makes one more sane and sympathetic, more observant and understanding, regardless of whatever age it springs from, whatever subjects it represents.Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Age And Art Sayings By Abby Aldrich Rockefeller: [On art:] I believe that it not only enriches the spiritual life, but that it
Well, I learned to cook. At my age," she told him. "What's next? Art therapy? Anyway, I've had quite a time of it this summer, and who knows what eases down on any road. Come, Rain. A quick goodbye, and off you go."
"Goodbye," said Rain to the Lion, and then to the woman.
"Not to them," said Glinda, "To me."
She turned eyes that were saucerly upon Glinda. "Mum?
Gregory Maguire Age And Art Sayings By Gregory Maguire: Well, I learned to cook. At my age," she told him. "What's next? Art therapy?
I'm not saying the 1970s was a golden age - I don't believe such a thing exists in art ... It would be like talking about a golden age of science. But it's true that those were slightly more ideological times, and the relevance of artists wasn't established by their CVs but by their work.Maurizio Cattelan Age And Art Sayings By Maurizio Cattelan: I'm not saying the 1970s was a golden age - I don't believe such a
Whatever China I'd been born into, I would probably still have become a painter - I loved sketching portraits as a child, and began art classes at the age 7. But if China hadn't been under Maoist rule, I might never have become a writer.Ma Jian Age And Art Sayings By Ma Jian: Whatever China I'd been born into, I would probably still have become a painter -
Like Keats he may wander through the old-world forests of Latmos, or stand like Morris on the galley's deck with the Viking when king and galley have long since passed away. But the drama is the meeting-place of art and life; it deals, as Mazzini said, not merely with man, but with social man, with man in his relation to God and to Humanity. It is the product of a period of great national united energy; it is impossible without a noble public, and belongs to such ages as the age of Elizabeth in London and of Pericles at Athens; it is part of such lofty moral and spiritual ardour as came to Greek after the defeat of the Persian fleet, and to Englishman after the wreck of the Armada of Spain.Oscar Wilde Age And Art Sayings By Oscar Wilde: Like Keats he may wander through the old-world forests of Latmos, or stand like Morris
Already nature is serving all those uses which science slowly derives on a much higher and grander scale to him that will be served by her. When the sunshine falls on the path of the poet, he enjoys all those pure benefits and pleasures which the arts slowly and partially realize from age to age. The winds which fan his cheek waft him the sum of that profit and happiness which their lagging inventions supply.Henry David Thoreau Age And Art Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: Already nature is serving all those uses which science slowly derives on a much higher
In general, dividing literature into prose and poetry began with the appearance of prose, for only in prose could such a division be expressed. By its nature, by its essence, art is hierarchical, automatically, and in this hierarchy, poetry stands above prose. If only because poetry is older. Poetry really is a very strange thing, because it belongs to a troglodyte as well as to a snob. It can be produced in the Stone Age and in the most modern salon, whereas prose requires a developed society, a developed structure, certain established classes, if you like. Here you could start reasoning like a Marxist without even being wrong. The poet works from the voice, from the sound. For him, content is not as important as is ordinarily believed. For a poet, there is almost no difference between phonetics and semantics. Therefore, only very rarely does the poet give any thought to who in fact comprises his audience. That is, he does so much more rarely than the prose writer.Joseph Brodsky Age And Art Sayings By Joseph Brodsky: In general, dividing literature into prose and poetry began with the appearance of prose, for
The art of our time, sacred art included, will necessarily be characterized by a certain poverty, grimness and roughness which correspond to the violent realities of a cruel age.Thomas Merton Age And Art Sayings By Thomas Merton: The art of our time, sacred art included, will necessarily be characterized by a certain
I think that everyone who does music, and everyone who does art, or everyone who decides at a young age that they're gonna do that, is someone who feels like an outsider. The world is not really set up for that.El-P Age And Art Sayings By El-P: I think that everyone who does music, and everyone who does art, or everyone who
Every work of art is the child of its age and, in many cases, the mother of our emotions. It follows that each period of culture produces an art of its own which can never be repeated.Wassily Kandinsky Age And Art Sayings By Wassily Kandinsky: Every work of art is the child of its age and, in many cases, the
Our brain is a circuit board with neurons and terminals ready to be wired. We are born free, then programmed to obey our parents, to tell the truth, pass exams, pursue and achieve, love and propagate, age and fade unfulfilled and uncertain what it has all been for. We swallow the operating system with our mother's milk and sleepwalk into the forest of consumer illusion craving shoes, houses, cars, magazines, experiences that endorse our preconceived dreams and opinions. We grow into our parents. We becomes clones, robots, matchstick men thinking and saying the same, feeling the same, behaving the same, appreciating in books and films and art shows those things we already recognize and understand.Chloe Thurlow Age And Art Sayings By Chloe Thurlow: Our brain is a circuit board with neurons and terminals ready to be wired.

Ah, well, during the Middle Ages, religion was often able to redeem art. Today, however, art is about the only thing that can redeem religion, and the clerics will never forgive us for that.Samuel R. Delany Age And Art Sayings By Samuel R. Delany: Ah, well, during the Middle Ages, religion was often able to redeem art. Today, however,
Consider the whole universe whereof thou art but a very little part, and the whole age of the world together, whereof but a short and very momentary portion is allotted unto thee, and all the fates and destinies together, of which how much is it that comes to thy part and share.Marcus Aurelius Age And Art Sayings By Marcus Aurelius: Consider the whole universe whereof thou art but a very little part, and the whole
At this point in my life - age 24 - I have chosen a fairly strange path that not many are walking. I am a professional spoken word poet who tours the world performing and teaching. I run an organization called Project VOICE dedicated to using this art form as an education and empowerment tool in schools and communities of all kinds.Sarah Kay Age And Art Sayings By Sarah Kay: At this point in my life - age 24 - I have chosen a fairly
The growth of art seems to be in cycles, and often its vigorous lifetime is restricted to a century or two. The periods of distinctive drama, Greek, English, Spanish, fall within such a limit; the schools of painting and sculpture likewise; and, in poetry, the Victorian age or the school of Pope will serve as examples.George Edward Woodberry Age And Art Sayings By George Edward Woodberry: The growth of art seems to be in cycles, and often its vigorous lifetime is
There is no "scientific worldview" just as there is no uniform enterprise "science"- except in the minds of metaphysicians, school masters, and scientists blinded by the achievements of their own particular niche ... There is no objective principle that could direct us away from the supermarket "religion" or the supermarket "art" toward the more modern, and much more expensive supermarket "science." Besides, the search for such guidance would be in conflict with the idea of individual responsibility which allegedly is an important ingredient of a "rational" or scientific age.Paul Feyerabend Age And Art Sayings By Paul Feyerabend: There is no "scientific worldview" just as there is no uniform enterprise "science"- except in
Age in itself gives substance - what has lasted becomes a thing worth keeping. An older poem's increasing strangeness of language is part of its beauty, in the same way that the cracks and darkening of an old painting become part of its luminosity in the viewer's mind.Jane Hirshfield Age And Art Sayings By Jane Hirshfield: Age in itself gives substance - what has lasted becomes a thing worth keeping. An
Without poets, without artists ... everything would fall apart into chaos. There would be no more seasons, no more civilizations, no more thought, no more humanity, no more life even; and impotent darkness would reign forever. Poets and artists together determine the features of their age, and the future meekly conforms to their edit.Guillaume Apollinaire Age And Art Sayings By Guillaume Apollinaire: Without poets, without artists ... everything would fall apart into chaos. There would be no
The art (as opposed to the technology) of reading requires that you develop a beautiful tolerance for incomprehension. The greatest books are the books that you come to understand more deeply with time, with age and with rereading.Michael Silverblatt Age And Art Sayings By Michael Silverblatt: The art (as opposed to the technology) of reading requires that you develop a beautiful
At the age when other children, I imagine, experience their first 'feeling' for a person, or for art, or for religion, I was affectionate, good, and even pious: by that I mean that under the influence of my mother, I was devoted to the Child Jesus.Pierre Teilhard De Chardin Age And Art Sayings By Pierre Teilhard De Chardin: At the age when other children, I imagine, experience their first 'feeling' for a person,
Both money and art powdered as they are with the romance and poetry of the age are magic. Rather money is magic art is magik. Money is stagecraft slight of hand a bag of clever tricks. Art is a plexus of forces and influences that act upon the senses by means of practical yet permanently inexplicable secret links. Admittedly the line between the two can be as thin as a dime.Tom Robbins Age And Art Sayings By Tom Robbins: Both money and art powdered as they are with the romance and poetry of the
From an early age she had developed the art of being alone and generally preferred her own company to anyone else's. She read books at enormous speed and judged them entirely on her ability to remove her from her material surroundings. In almost all the unhappiest days of her life she had been able to escape from her own inner world by living temporarily in someone else's, and on the two or three occasions that she had been too upset to concentrate she had been desolate.Sebastian Faulks Age And Art Sayings By Sebastian Faulks: From an early age she had developed the art of being alone and generally preferred
Fashion was the only law, pleasure the only pursuit, and the splendour of dress and furniture was the only distinction of the citizens of Antioch. The arts of luxury were honoured; the serious and manly virtues were the subject of ridicule; and the contempt for female modesty and reverent age announced the universal corruption of the capital of the East.Edward Gibbon Age And Art Sayings By Edward Gibbon: Fashion was the only law, pleasure the only pursuit, and the splendour of dress and
The world of visual perspective is one of unified and homogeneous space. Such a world is alien to the resonating diversity of spoken words. So language was the last art to accept the visual logic of Gutenberg technology, and the first to rebound in the electric age.Marshall McLuhan Age And Art Sayings By Marshall McLuhan: The world of visual perspective is one of unified and homogeneous space. Such a world
Relevance is a big, big question. It's more about what's your definition of being relevant. In the music world, agism is a big issue. It's about youth and youth culture. There's no other art form that I know that requires you to be a certain age.Larry Mullen Jr. Age And Art Sayings By Larry Mullen Jr.: Relevance is a big, big question. It's more about what's your definition of being relevant.
I've had so many influences and sources of inspiration as an illustrator that it is impossible to name just one. I loved Aubrey Beardsley when I was a student, and then Edmund Dulac and other Golden Age illustrators made a big impact, as well as Victorian painters like Richard Dadd and Edward Burne-Jones. My long-term heroes though are Albretch Durer, Brueghel, Hieronymous Bosch, Jan Van Eyck, Leonardo, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Turner and Degas. What most of them have in common is brilliant draughtsmanship and a strong linear or graphic quality. Most are also printmakers. The one I keep going back to and who fascinates me the most is JMW Turner, the greatest watercolourist.Alan Lee Age And Art Sayings By Alan Lee: I've had so many influences and sources of inspiration as an illustrator that it is
As the imagination is set to look into the invisible and immaterial, it seems to attract something of their vitality; and though it can give nothing to the body to redeem it from years, it can give to the soul that freshness of youth in old age which is even more beautiful than youth in the young.Henry Ward Beecher Age And Art Sayings By Henry Ward Beecher: As the imagination is set to look into the invisible and immaterial, it seems to
This was the 1940s; there was no television. It was a different age - it was not swamped by media; it was swamped by reality, and storytelling was a very big art where I came from.Gregory Benford Age And Art Sayings By Gregory Benford: This was the 1940s; there was no television. It was a different age - it
At its best, cinema does retain a remarkable ability to speak to people of every age, from every background, and in ways that almost any other art form in popular culture struggles to compete with.David Puttnam Age And Art Sayings By David Puttnam: At its best, cinema does retain a remarkable ability to speak to people of every
The public has always, and in every age, been badly brought up. They are continually asking Art to be popular, to please their want of taste, to flatter their absurd vanity, to tell them what they have been told before, to show them what they ought to be tired of seeing, to amuse them when they feel heavy after eating too much, and to distract their thoughts when they are wearied of their own stupidity.Oscar Wilde Age And Art Sayings By Oscar Wilde: The public has always, and in every age, been badly brought up. They are continually
Think about the pressure to "pass" by lying about one's agethat familiar temptation to falsify a condition of one's birth oridentity and pretend to be part of a more favored group. Fair-skinned blacks invented "passing" as a term, Jews escaping anti-Semitism perfected the art, and the sexual closet continues the punishment, but pretending to be a younger age is probably the most encouraged form of "passing," with the least organized support for "coming out" as one's true generational self.Gloria Steinem Age And Art Sayings By Gloria Steinem: Think about the pressure to "pass" by lying about one's agethat familiar temptation to falsify
The real difference between God and human beings, he thought, was that God cannot stand continuance. No sooner has he created a season of a year, or a time of the day, than he wishes for something quite different, and sweeps it all away. No sooner was one a young man, and happy at that, than the nature of things would rush one into marriage, martyrdom or old age. And human beings cleave to the existing state of things. All their lives they are striving to hold the moment fast ... Their art itself is nothing but the attempt to catch by all means the one particular moment, one light, the momentary beauty of one woman or one flower, and make it everlasting.Karen Blixen Age And Art Sayings By Karen Blixen: The real difference between God and human beings, he thought, was that God cannot stand
If philosophy had the power to establish incontrovertible truths, immune to doubt, and if philosophers were as a rule wholly disinterested practitioners of their art, then it might be possible to speak of progress in philosophy. In fact, however, the philosophical tendencies and presuppositions of any age are, to a very great degree, determined by the prevailing cultural mood or by the ideological premises generally approved of my the educated classes. As often as not, the history of philosophy has been a history of prejudices masquerading as principles, and so merely a history of fashion. It is as possible today to be an intellectually scrupulous Platonist as it was more than two thousand years ago; it is simply not in vogue.David Bentley Hart Age And Art Sayings By David Bentley Hart: If philosophy had the power to establish incontrovertible truths, immune to doubt, and if philosophers
This is great art, we've been told this by the great pundits of our age. And in consequence why should we bother to learn? There's nothing more delightful than to be told, 'You don't have to learn, my boy. There's nothing in it. Modern art? There's nothing in it.Anthony Burgess Age And Art Sayings By Anthony Burgess: This is great art, we've been told this by the great pundits of our age.
I grew up in a very musical household. My brother had KISS and Van Halen records, but my parents loved country and show tunes, so I had all of those records when a kid. I pretty much knew exactly what I was going to do at a young age. I loved album covers, I loved listening to a record and staring at the art while listening to it. When I got older and discovered paining, drawing and PhotoShop, I was able to do both simultaneously; I enjoy making both.Piggy D. Age And Art Sayings By Piggy D.: I grew up in a very musical household. My brother had KISS and Van Halen
Mario'd fallen in love with the first Madam Psychosis programs because he felt like he was listening to someone sad read out loud from yellow letters she'd taken out of a shoebox on a rainy P.M, stuff about heartbreak and people you loved dying and U.S. woe, stuff that was real. It is increasingly hard to find valid art that is about stuff that is real in this way. The older Mario gets, the more confused he gets about the fact that everyone at E.T.A. over the age of about Kent Blott finds stuff that's really real uncomfortable and they get embarrassed. It's like there's some rule that real stuff can only get mentioned if everybody rolls their eyes or laughs in a way that isn't happy.David Foster Wallace Age And Art Sayings By David Foster Wallace: Mario'd fallen in love with the first Madam Psychosis programs because he felt like he
