Quotes About The Soul And Art

Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one
— Stella Adler —

Conventions bleed my soul
squeeze me old
wear me grey
like a headstone in transit.
It's tradition and form
fear of the unknown
driving me dead
in tight spaces darkly.
I cry aloud
but who can hear
when I stand alone
in the middle of an art show ... .

— Chila Woychik

I wondered why I hadn't realized before that art was hard because you had to recreate not merely the scene but the way it soared into your soul and changed you.

— Edeet Ravel

If you spend enough time reading or writing, you find a voice, but you also find certain tastes. You find certain writers who when they write, it makes your own brain voice like a tuning fork, and you just resonate with them. And when that happens, reading those writers-not all of whom are modern ... I mean, if you are willing to make allowances for the way English has changed, you can go way, way back with this- becomes a source of unbelievable joy. It's like eating candy for the soul. So probably the smart thing to say is that lucky people develop a relationship with a certain kind of art that becomes spiritual, almost religious, and doesn't mean, you know, church stuff, but it means you're just never the same.

— David Foster Wallace

I am a soul. I know well that what I shall render up to the grave is not myself. That which is myself will go elsewhere. Earth, thou art not my abyss!

— Victor Hugo

The primary benefit of practicing any art, whether well or badly, is that it enables one's soul to grow.

— Kurt Vonnegut

A work of art is like a person: it has more than one soul in its breast.

— Alfred Brendel

If you do not bother to take the time to compose and to light properly, then you end up with something almost less than reality. You end up without the soul, the heart, the art of the moment.

— Vilmos Zsigmond

God cannot be represented by an image. We ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. We wrong God, and put an affront upon him, if we think so. God honoured man in making his soul after his own likeness; but man dishonours God if he makes him after the likeness of his body. The Godhead is spiritual, infinite, immaterial, incomprehensible, and therefore it is a very false and unjust conception which an image gives us of God.

— Matthew Henry

The great end of art is to strike the imagination with the power of a soul that refuses to admit defeat even in the midst of a collapsing world.

— Friedrich Nietzsche

If thou art something bring thy soul and interchange with mine. - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller.

— Friedrich Schiller
