When my circle got smaller, my vision got clearer. There’s strength in loyalty, not numbers.
Vision is important. Make clear what you’re trying to achieve.
In the world, there exists no aesthetic plane, not even the aesthetic plane of goodness.
All efforts to make politics aesthetic culminate in one thing, war.
Aesthetic life is not something sophisticated – that’s a humanistic lie. Aesthetic life is as integral to being human as building sandcastles on the beach and giving your children names.
Art is the accomplice of love. Take love away and there is no longer art.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Art will survive, artists won’t.
In judging of a beautiful statue, the aesthetic faculty is absolutely and completely gratified by the splendid curves of those marble lips that are dumb to our complaint, the noble modeling of those limbs that are powerless to help us.
Art has the qualities of aesthetic beauty, purity, transcendence.
Love is an aesthetic, studded with fairy tales.
Nature is the art of God.
It’s odd that there is a high level of appreciation of nature. There is the aesthetic side that really loves nature and beauty.
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps, down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision.
Art has the answers to many of the questions we weren’t brave enough to ask.
True art comes from flying with the madness so close you burn your eyelashes.
All art is in revolution of tyranny.
India has the sanction of her own past glory and future vision to become strong – in every sense of the term.
I have a vision of India: an India free of hunger and fear, an India free of illiteracy and want.
