Consolidation of my favorite quotes. Installation One.
I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process. – Vincent Van Gogh
I dream my painting, and then I paint my dream. ~ Vincent Van Gogh
Lean your body forward slightly to support the guitar against your chest, for the poetry of the music should resound in your heart. ~ Andres Segovia
I know that to paint the sea really well, you need to look at it every hour of every day in the same place so that you can understand its way in that particular spot and that is why I am working on the same motifs over and over again, four or six times even. ~ Claude Monet
I do not paint a portrait to look like the subject, rather does the person grow to look like his portrait.” ~ Salvador Dali
It’s kind of 19th century tradition that practice should be hard work, leftover from the Victorian thing. I think this is a totally destructive idea. The essence of the thing is that the work should be enjoyable…. When people are learning instruments, they should be encouraged and advised: if they say they don’t enjoy their practice, I always say, well, FIND a way to enjoy it.
~ John Williams, RealVideo interview at The Guitarist web site, May 1999
It took me time to understand my water lilies. I had planted them for the pleasure of it; I grew them without ever thinking of painting them. ~ Claude Monet
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. ~Van Gogh
Consolidation of my favorite quotes. There are inspiring, timeless and motivational.
There were from my older posts, where I’m trying to list it out in 3 installations.
Making as a re-post, while those singular post will be deleted.
This blog and the rest of them are undergoing an ‘overhaul’ of categories and tags.
Refining them by narrowing into primary and secondary topics, and omitting those arbitrary and irrelevant categories.
