Citáty Henri Matisse


„Přesnost není pravda.“

„Všude kvetou květy pro toho, kdo je chce vidět.“


„Instinkt musí být potlačen zrovna tak, jako člověk musí prořezat větve stromu, aby lépe rostl.“

„Creativity takes courage.“

„There are always flowers for those who want to see them.“

„I didn't expect to recover from my second operation but since I did, I consider that I'm living on borrowed time. Every day that dawns is a gift to me and I take it in that way. I accept it gratefully without looking beyond it. I completely forget my physical suffering and all the unpleasantness of my present condition and I think only of the joy of seeing the sun rise once more and of being able to work a little bit, even under difficult conditions.“

„You must forget all your theories, all your ideas before the subject. What part of these is really your own will be expressed in your expression of the emotion awakened in you by the subject.“

„We ought to view ourselves with the same curiosity and openness with which we study a tree, the sky or a thought, because we too are linked to the entire universe.“


„To look at something as though we had never seen it before requires great courage.“

„Another word for creativity is courage.“

„... for whether we want to or not, we belong to our time and we share in its opinions, its feelings, even its delusions.“

„Nothing can be accomplished without love.“


„You study, you learn, but you guard the original naïveté. It has to be within you, as desire for drink is within the drunkard or love is within the lover.“

„Exactitude is not truth.“

„I don't know whether I believe in God or not. I think, really, I'm some kind of a Buddhist. But the essential thing is to put oneself in a frame of mind which is close to that of prayer.“

„To arrive is to be in prison.“
