Creativity & The Arts
"Miserable childhood, mental illness – where do I find that kind of inspiration?"
"Artists need to be free."
"Her mind was like a spring-tide in full flood; rich, shining, vigorous, and capable of infinite variety."
"Art should elevate not pander."
"You can't rush inspiration."
"It's all creation, whatever you make. An album, a film, a sweater, a ceramic fish. It's all an accomplishment."
"Great works of art can never belong to one individual, at least not in spirit."
"Each artist makes the world his or her own and in doing so, elevates it. And in doing that, it elevates us and gives us a larger view."
"First thought, best thought."
"Art is the most intense mode of individualism the world has ever known."
