A Quote by Pablo Ruiz Picasso on art, god, inventions, justice, style, and trying

God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the ant. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things.

A Quote by Pablo Ruiz Picasso on appreciation, beauty, love, and mind

I hate that aesthetic game of the eye and the mind, played by these connoisseurs, these mandarins who "appreciate" beauty. What is beauty, anyway? There's no such thing. I never "appreciate," any more than I "like." I love it or I hate.

A Quote by Pablo Ruiz Picasso on art, earth, and emotion

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.
