Zitat des Tages von Emile Zola:
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.
If you shut up truth, and bury it underground, it will but grow.
If you ask me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.
Perfection is such a nuisance that I often regret having cured myself of using tobacco.
I defy you to find any real will, any reasoning force, outside of life. And everything is there; there is, in the world, no other will than this force which impels everything to life, a life even broader and higher.
If I cannot overwhelm with my quality, I will overwhelm with my quantity.
I am an artist... I am here to live out loud.
One forges one's style on the terrible anvil of daily deadlines.
The fate of animals is of greater importance to me than the fear of appearing ridiculous; it is indissolubly connected with the fate of men.
I am little concerned with beauty or perfection. I don't care for the great centuries. All I care about is life, struggle, intensity.
The thought is a deed. Of all deeds she fertilizes the world most.
There are two men inside the artist, the poet and the craftsman. One is born a poet. One becomes a craftsman.
Selling beauty is something I can understand. Even selling false beauty seems perfectly natural; it's a sign of progress.
In my view you cannot claim to have seen something until you have photographed it.
The truth is on the march and nothing will stop it.
In Paris, everything's for sale: wise virgins, foolish virgins, truth and lies, tears and smiles.
Up to this day, there has been no proof of the existence of any intelligence other than the human.
