quote
When I was a child, my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk you'll end up as the pope.' Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
The hidden harmony is better than the obvious.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place; from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Success is dangerous. One begins to copy oneself, and to copy oneself is more dangerous than to copy others. It leads to sterility.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
I don't say everything, but I paint everything.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Art is never chaste. It ought to be forbidden to ignorant innocents, never allowed into contact with those not sufficiently prepared. Yes, art is dangerous. Where it is chaste, it is not art.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
I begin with an idea and then it becomes something else.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Are we to paint what's on the face, what's inside the face, or what's behind it?
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don't start measuring her limbs.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
I am always doing things I can't do, that's how I get to do them.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
When we discovered Cubism, we did not have the aim of discovering Cubism. We only wanted to express what was in us.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
If there is something to steal, I steal it!.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
To copy others is necessary, but to copy oneself is pathetic
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
We don't grow older, we grow riper.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
I'd like to live as a poor man with lots of money.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
You have to have an idea of what you are going to do, but it should be a vague idea.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Bad artists copy. Good artists steal.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Painting is stronger than I am. It can make me do whatever it wants.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Everything you can imagine is real.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
I don't believe in accidents. There are only encounters in history. There are no accidents.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Love is the greatest refreshment in life.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
The chief enemy of creativity is "good" sense.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
The world today doesn't make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the cat. He has no real style. He just keeps on trying other things.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot; others transform a yellow spot into the sun.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
I do not seek. I find.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
There are only two types of women - goddesses and doormats.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
People want to find a "meaning" in everything and everyone. That's the disease of our age, an age that is anything but practical but believes itself to be more practical than any other age.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth, at least the truth that is given to us to understand.
quote
Pablo Picasso
quote
Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working.
