Quotes About Artistic Passion


The soul of an artist cannot be muted indefinitely. It must either be expressed or it will consume the host.

Gerard de Marigny, Rise to the Call (Cris De Niro, #3)

The real issue is not talent as an independent element, but talent in relationship to will, desire and persistence.
Design is an expression of the purpose, and it may (if it is good enough) later be judged as art; design depends largely on constraints and it is a method of action (there are always constraints and these usually include ethic).
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
To design is to communicate clearly by whatever means you can control or master.
If there were a prerequisite for the future successful digital creative, it would be the passion for discovery.

What a face this girl possessed!—Could I neither die then nor gaze at her face every day, I would need to recreate it through painting or sculpture, or through fatherhood, until a second such face could be born.

Roman Payne, The Wanderess

About writing:The trick is to make sure you love what you've produced--to Believe..in order to convince.

Christina Westover

Life is the ultimate artistic masterpiece, and it's up to you, the creator, to make it as wildly dazzling as possible.

Laura Resau, The Indigo Notebook (Notebook, #1)

Not every artistic person should have to be a photographer, but every photographer should be artistic.

Pradeepa Pandiyan

I was surfing the Internet for a different sort of education. I surfed for photos of circus freaks and synonyms for the word intercourse and for answers to why staring at the stars in the evening tore my heart with longing.

Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)

A dreamer rises above their inherent fearfulness that they will always produce inferior work and grants oneself a license to put forth their best effort.

Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

There are two kinds of artists in this world; those that work because the spirit is in them, and they cannot be silent if they would, and those that speak from a conscientious desire to make apparent to others the beauty that has awakened their own admiration.

Anna Katharine Green

I knew I could not sketch a woman, in all her natural inner beauty. I may have the perfect skill, but putting something in pen and paper, is interesting, unique, nothing less than a challenge.

Deepak Ranjan, Nights of the Velvet: A Conditional Dream

Advancing towards a person’s dreams with confidence enables a person to move beyond restrictive boundaries and meet with uncommon success. Liberated from personal insecurities and eliminating useless second guessing enables a person to live an imagined life.

Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Pain is a crucial part of our reality; it awakens a person from a mental stupor. A person must never be afraid to discover where their pain originates, follow pain to where it emanates from, learn from its messages, and reject the mindless business and busyness of contemporary culture in order to fuel an artistic vision of the self.

Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Witnessing the panoply of beauty in all of nature takes us out of our shell of self-absorption and makes us realize that we are merely bit players in the game of life. Witnessing the majesty of beauty confirms that the real show lies outside us to observe and appreciate and not inside us to transfix us. True beauty charms us into seeing the grandeur of goodness that surrounds us and by doing so, the pristine splendor of nature releases us from wallowing in the poverty of our self-idealization. The bewitching spell cast by the exquisiteness of nature levitates our souls and transforms our psyche. When we see, hear, taste, smell, or touch what is beautiful, we cannot suppress the urge to replicate its baffling texture by singing, dancing, painting, or writing. Opening our eye to the loveliness of a single flower is how we stay in touch with the glorious pageantry of living.
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls
