Words are also a form of art. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"I have no fear...because the painting has a life of its own." -Jackson Pollock

"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." -Thomas Merton

"The earth seemed to move with me. I found a new source of power and beauty, a source I never knew existed." -Roger Bannister

"It's very important that young artists push boundaries, because sometimes you have this urge to do something ... and if you don't follow through with it you might miss out on a developmental experience." -Marina Abramovic

"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." -Pablo Picasso

"This world is but a canvas to our imagination." -Henry David Thoreau

"In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

"All great artists draw from the same resource: the human heart, which tells us that we are all more alike than we are unalike." -Maya Angelou

"Creativity is not just for artists. It's for businesspeople looking for a new way to close a sale; it's for engineers trying to solve a problem; it's for parents who want their children to see the world in more than one way." -Twyla Tharp
