„Art leads to a more profound concept of life, because art itself is a profound expression of feeling. The artist is born, and art is the expression of his overflowing soul. Because his soul is rich, he cares comparatively little about the superficial necessities of the material world; he sublimates the pressure of material affairs in an artistic experience.“

„A miracle worker is an artist of the soul. There’s no higher art than living a good life.“

—  Marianne Williamson American writer 1952

Zdroj: A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles" (1992), Ch. 7 : Work, §3 : Personal Power
Kontext: A miracle worker is an artist of the soul. There’s no higher art than living a good life. An artist informs the world of what’s available behind the masks we all wear. That’s what we’re all here to do. The reason so many of us are obsessed with becoming stars is because we’re not yet starring in our own lives. The cosmic spotlight isn’t pointed at you; it radiates from within you.

„Studies in painting: Non. He learned to express himself by means of art in the same way as the child learns to talk. No teaching is needed for the one who is born an artist, and even the expression 'self-taught' is a phony, he thinks.“

—  Max Ernst German painter, sculptor and graphic artist 1891 - 1976

„The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation.“

—  Auguste Rodin French sculptor 1840 - 1917

Attributed to Rodin in: Southwestern Art Vol. 6 (1977). p. 20; Partly cited in: A Toolbox for Humanity: More Than 9000 Years of Thought (2004) by Lloyd Albert Johnson, p. 7
1950s-1990s
Kontext: The artist must learn the difference between the appearance of an object and the interpretation of this object through his medium. The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation.

„If the genius is an artist, then he accomplishes his work as art, but neither he nor his work of art has a telos outside him.“

—  Sören Kierkegaard Danish philosopher and theologian, founder of Existentialism 1813 - 1855

„A great artist is born from a profound knowledge of the tradition and problems of painting. However, there are many works in which freshness and audacity surprise, as can be seen in popular art and in certain examples of modern art.“

—  Fernando Botero Colombian artist 1932
