„But secretly I knew I had been transformed, moved by the revalation that human beings create art, that to be an artist was to see what others could not.“

„The great Christian art did not die because all possible forms had been used up; it died because faith was being transformed into piety.“

—  André Malraux French novelist, art theorist and politician 1901 - 1976
Les voix du silence [Voices of Silence] (1951), Context: The great Christian art did not die because all possible forms had been used up; it died because faith was being transformed into piety. Now, the same conquest of the outside world that brought in our modern individualism, so different from that of the Renaissance, is by way of relativizing the individual. It is plain to see that man's faculty of transformation, which began by a remaking of the natural world, has ended by calling man himself into question. André Malraux, Les voix du silence [Voices of Silence] (1951) Part IV, Chapter VI

„I don't do art to address other people but to address myself. I've never done art with a thought of being a professional artist who makes a living by selling his art.“

—  Robert Fulghum American writer 1937
Context: I don't do art to address other people but to address myself. I've never done art with a thought of being a professional artist who makes a living by selling his art. I've never had a commercial show in a gallery. I suppose I'm like those who write poetry or songs without seeking publication. I make art in and for the experience itself — to satisfy a need to express myself in a creative, colorful, non-verbal way.
