„Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? no. Just as one can never learn how to paint.“

„I guess the one thing I really learned from participating in sports was to just never say "no", never stop trying, and to always believe that you can do better than the next fellow.“

—  Bruce Bennett actor 1906 - 2007
Context: I guess the one thing I really learned from participating in sports was to just never say "no", never stop trying, and to always believe that you can do better than the next fellow. I tried to follow this throughout my life, but I always tried to be respectful about it. As quoted in an interview with Marc Blau (2004) http://www.celebratestadium.com/blogz/2006/04/stadium-olympics-hollywood.html

„That's how it is
One day two paintings were hanging,
Right opposite each other
Really colorful and beautiful the one
And the other simple and honest
* That simplicity and truth are the characteristics
of science and of art.
Well, people can not understand that.
It was to the tinsel that they gave their favor. (translation from the original Dutch: Fons Heijnsbroek)“

—  Jozef Israëls Dutch painter 1824 - 1911
version in original Dutch (kort gedicht van Jozef Israëls, in het Nederlands): Zoo is het Er hingen eens twee schilderijen, Juist vlak tegenover elkaar Regt kleurig en schitterend de eene En d'ander eenvoudig en waar ** Dat eenvoud en waarheid het kenmerk Van wetenschap is en van kunst Och, dat kan het volk niet begrijpen En [aan] 't klatergoud schonk het zijn gunst. A short poem of Israëls, written in his letter from The Hague, 13 Dec. 1876 to art-seller Pilgeram & Lefèvre in London; from collection of Fondation Custodia, Institut Neérlandais Paris, input no. 1971-A 506

„Clearly, the child is learning about space! ...how on earth does one learn about time? Can one time fit inside another? Can two of them go side by side? In music, we find out!“

—  Marvin Minsky American cognitive scientist 1927 - 2016
Context: Of what use is musical knowledge? Here is one idea. Each child spends endless days in curious ways; we call this play. A child stacks and packs all kinds of blocks and boxes, lines them up, and knocks them down. … Clearly, the child is learning about space!... how on earth does one learn about time? Can one time fit inside another? Can two of them go side by side? In music, we find out!

„One cannot argue or explain in paint.“

—  Patrick Swift British artist 1927 - 1983
Context: Any painter who thinks he has something to say to the people, or anything to contribute to the world of ideas or literature, is treading dangerous ground; the influence of literature on painting is at all times dangerous if not deadly. Painting is a visual art; and the job of the artist must be to create in visual terms the tension experienced. One cannot argue or explain in paint. The aim is not to put in everything that will help, but as little as one can help, so that a picture is in one sense a “sum of destructions”. It is a question of honesty and courage: “One produces only the necessary” — Degas
