I have always believed that the right words have a way of finding you when you need to hear them.  For me, quotes are little bite-sized messengers of courage, perseverance, and hope for the creative artist in this often overly materialistic world.  Here is a collection of 150 amazing quotes that I often revisit whenever I need to rekindle my own creative spirit:

 

“Art is not a thing, it is a way.” ~Elbert Hubbard

 

“Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul — and you answer.” ~Terri Guillemets

 

“I am interested in art as a means of living a life; not as a means of making a living.” ~Robert Henri

 

“Art attracts us only by what it reveals of our most secret self.” ~Jean-Luc Godard

 

”When it is working, you completely go into another place, you’re tapping into things that are totally universal, completely beyond your ego and your own self. That’s what it’s all about.” ~Keith Haring

 

“The object isn’t to make art, it’s to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable.” ~Robert Henri

 

‎”Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It’s a gift to the world and every being in it. Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you’ve got.” ~Steven Pressfield

 

“Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.” ~Andre Gide
