Artists Quotes

Five of the best book quotes about artists
  1. #1
    Artists use lies to tell the truth.
  2. #2
    “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 and having worthless dreams.”
  3. #3
    “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.”
  4. #4
    “You know we poor artists have to show ourselves in society from time to time, just to remind the public that we are not savages. With an evening coat and a white tie, as you told me once, anybody, even a stock-broker, can gain a reputation for being civilized.”
  5. #5
    “The world calls them its singers and poets and artists and storytellers; but they are just people who have never forgotten the way to fairyland.”
