Maybe I'll paint, do photography, just something else. I can see that.
There is only one true thing: instantly paint what you see. When you've got it, you've got it. When you haven't, you begin again. All the rest is humbug.
Painting is a blind man's profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen.
And I like the idea of change. Because I don't see why we should hang a painting on the wall and then just not think of it anymore because it's there like a piece of furniture.
Some say they see poetry in my paintings; I see only science.
But what is Hope? Nothing but the paint on the face of Existence; the least touch of truth rubs it off, and then we see what a hollow-cheeked harlot we have got hold of.
But I don't see why we have to take a central hall, for instance, and use in it a sculpture or painting. I think it detracts, somehow.
If we could but paint with the hand what we see with the eye.
The painter should not paint what he sees, but what will be seen.
I don't know what it means to be a sex symbol. When I look myself on a magazine cover I don't see it as me, but as someone painted, fluffed, puffed and done up.

A king, realizing his incompetence, can either delegate or abdicate his duties. A father can do neither. If only sons could see the paradox, they would understand the dilemma.
Do you see how the god always hurls his bolts at the greatest houses and the tallest trees. For he is wont to thwart whatever is greater than the rest.
I haven't done a marathon for a long time. So we'll see. I will need good luck.
You see, it's never the environment; it's never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events - how we interpret them - that shapes who we are today and who we'll become tomorrow.
It should be one's sole endeavor to see everything afresh and create it anew.
It seems to me that any sensible person must see that violence does not change the world and if it does, then only temporarily.
If we glance at the most important revolutions in history, we see at once that the greatest number of these originated in the periodical revolutions on the human mind.
I really do see that anywhere I am, whether it's doing interviews a hundred in a row, that every situation I'm in, I'm at choice in the matter.
The artist must be in his work as God is in creation, invisible and all-powerful; one must sense him everywhere but never see him.
Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.
Painting is damned difficult - you always think you've got it, but you haven't.
Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
The moment a person forms a theory, his imagination sees in every object only the tracts which favor that theory.
