Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

As regards my means of expression, I try my hardest to achieve the maximum of clarity, power, and plastic aggressiveness; a physical sensation to begin with, followed up by an impact on the psyche. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Linda Morris

He returned in a moment with a phone, a high-end model that probably cost way more than hers. His cell phone wallpaper was an abstract artwork with lots of colorful circles and blots - Kandinsky, maybe, or Miro? She always got those
two confused. She gave him points for not having a picture of some scantily-clad woman thrusting her boobs at the camera, like Steve had on his phone. Tacky. Nude-woman wallpapers were the cell phone equivalent of silver naked-lady mud flaps, in her opinion. — Linda Morris

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

I just don't know if people actually perceive which events are miracles and which are not. There are no doubt many miracles claimed which were not miracles at all. There are also probably many miracles that no one recognized when they occurred. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

We spend our lives guessing at what's going on inside everybody else, and when we happen to get lucky and guess right, we think we 'understand.' Such nonsense. Even a monkey at a computer will type a word every now and then. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

That's just one of the drawbacks when you love somebody so much greater than yourself, Miro told himself. I'll never know the difference. She'll come back and I'll be happy with all the time we have together and I'll never know how little time and effort she actually devotes to being with me. A diversion, that's what I am. Then — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

Life is a suicide course, Miro. Check it out- basic philosophy course. You spend your life running out of fuel and when you're finally out, you croak. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Frank Stella

You couldn't forget [Pablo] Picasso, [Henri] Matisse and [Joan] Miro either. And it had to be, you know, at least as good or better. — Frank Stella

Miro Quotes By Alfred H. Barr Jr.

The non-geometric biomorphic forms of Arp and Miro and Moore are definitely in the ascendant. The formal tradition of Gauguin, Fauvism and Expressionism will probably dominate for some time to come the tradition of Cezanne and Cubism. — Alfred H. Barr Jr.

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I believe that to do anything in this world one needs a love for risk and adventure, and above all, to be able to do without what middle-class families call "future." — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

Never, never do I set to work on a canvas in the state it comes in from the shop. I provoke accidents - a form, a splotch of color. Any accident is good enough. I let the matiere decide. Then I prepare a ground by, for example, wiping my brushes on the canvas. Letting fall some drops of turpentine on it would do just as well. If I want to make a drawing I crumple the sheet of paper or I wet it; the flowing water traces a line and this line may suggest what is to come next. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

Poetry and painting are done in the same way you make love; it's an exchange of blood, a total embrace - without caution, without any thought of protecting yourself. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

To gain freedom is to gain simplicity. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

What I am seeking ... is a motionless movement, something equivalent to what is called the eloquence of silence ... — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

The painting rises from the brushstrokes as a poem rises from the words. The meaning comes later. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Robert Wyatt

My heroes are people like Picasso and Miro and people who at last really reach something in their old age, which they absolutely couldn't ever have done in their youth. — Robert Wyatt

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

Little by little, I've reached the stage of using only a small number of forms and colors. It's not the first time that painting has been done with a very narrow range of colors. The frescoes of the tenth century are painted like this. For me, they are magnificent things. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I begin painting and as I paint the picture begins to assert itself, or suggest itself, under my brush. The form becomes a sign for a woman or a bird as I work ... The first stage is free, unconscious ... the second stage is carefully calculated. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I work like a gardener. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I want to assassinate painting, — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

Ela reached out for Grego. He refused to go to her. Instead he did exactly what Ender expected, what he had prepared for. Grego turned in Ender's relaxed grip, flung his arms around the neck of the speaker for the dead, and wept bitterly, hysterically. Ender spoke gently to the others, who watched helplessly. "How could he show his grief to you, when he thought you hated him?" "We never hated Grego," said Olhado. "I should have known," said Miro. "I knew he was suffering the worst pain of any of us, but it never occurred to me . . ." "Don't blame yourself," said Ender. "It's the kind of thing that only a stranger can see." He heard Jane whispering in his ear. "You never cease to amaze me, Andrew, the way you turn people into plasma. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

A simple line painted with the brush can lead to freedom and happiness. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

My characters have undergone the same process of simplification as the colors. Now that they have been simplified, they appear more human and alive than if they had been represented in all their details. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

The works must be conceived with fire in the soul but executed with clinical coolness. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

This emotion I'm feeling now, this is love, right?"
"I don't know. Is it a longing? Is it a giddy stupid happiness just because you're with me?"
"Yes," she said.
"That's influenza," said Miro. "Watch for nausea or diarrhea within a few hours. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

The spectacle of the sky overwhelms me. I'm overwhelmed when I see, in an immense sky, the crescent of the moon or the sun. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

For me, a painting must give off sparks. It must dazzle like the beauty of a woman or a poem. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

Art class was like a religious ceremony to me. I would wash my hands carefully before touching paper or pencils. The instruments of work were sacred objects to me. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

Painting or poetry is made as one makes love - a total embrace, prudence thrown to the winds, nothing held back. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

A modeled form is less striking than one which is not. Modeling prevents shock and limits movement to the visual depth. Without modeling or chiaroscuro depth is limitless: movement can stretch to infinity. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

For me an object is something living. This cigarette or this box of matches contains a secret life much more intense than that of certain human beings. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I think of my studio as a vegetable garden, where things follow their natural course. They grow, they ripen. You have to graft. You have to water. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

You understand that the piggies are animals, and you no more condemn them for murdering Libo and Pipo than you condemn a cabra for shewing up capim."
That's right," said Miro.
Ender smiled. "And that's why you'll never learn anything from them. Because you think of them as animals. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

If you have any notion of where you are going, you will never get anywhere. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

The simplest things give me ideas. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

My tendency towards bareness and simplification has been practiced in three fields: modeling, colors, and the figuration of the personages. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Mary Calmes

The thing was, though, Ian was one of those rare guys who wanted the one person in the world who fit him like a glove, and that person, it turned out, was me. So, yes, Ian was still technically bi, but was exclusively now Miro-sexual and wasn't interested in trying the buffet. — Mary Calmes

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

We've devoted our lives to learning about them!" Miro said.
Ender stopped. "Not from them. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

Not just the listeners, either. Miro had to be fair - he was as impatient with himself as they were. When he thought of the sheer effort involved in explaining a complicated idea, when he anticipated trying to form the words with lips and tongue and jaws that wouldn't obey him, when he thought of how long it would all take, he usually felt too weary to speak. His mind raced on and on, as fast as ever, thinking so many thoughts that at times Miro wanted his brain to shut down, to be silent and give him peace. But his thoughts remained his own, unshared. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I make no distinction between poetry and painting. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

The picture should be fecund. It must bring a world to birth. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

I must rejoice that I am part of her, instead of resenting that I am not more of her. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I feel the need of attaining the maximum of intensity with the minimum of means. It is this which has led me to give my painting a character of even greater bareness. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

That which interests me above all else is the calligraphy of a tree or the tiles of a roof, and I mean leaf by leaf, branch by branch, blade by blade of grass. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

But I hope that in the lives of Ender Wiggin, Novinha, Miro, Ela, Human, Jane, the hive queen, and so many others in this book, you will find stories worth holding in your memory, perhaps even in your heart. That's the transaction that counts more than bestseller lists, royalty statements, awards, or reviews. Because in the pages of this book, you and I will meet one-on-one, my mind and yours, and you will enter a world of my making and dwell there, not as a character that I control, but as a person with a mind of your own. You will make of my story what you need it to be, if you can. I hope my tale is true enough and flexible enough that you can make it into a world worth living in. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I begin my pictures under the effect of a shock which I feel and which makes me escape from reality ... I need a point of departure, even if it's only a speck of dust or a flash of light. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

What I am looking for ... is an immobile movement, something which would be the equivalent of what is called the eloquence of silence, or what St. John of the Cross, I think it was, described with the term 'mute music'. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

Throughout the time in which I am working on a canvas I can feel how I am beginning to love it, with that love which is born of slow comprehension. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

Painting must be fertile. It must give birth to a world ... it must fertilize the imagination. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

What I will no longer accept is the mediocre life of a modest little gentleman. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

More important than a work of art itself is what it will sow. Art can die, a painting can disappear. What counts is the seed. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

When I stand before a canvas, I never know what I'll do, and I am the first one surprised at what comes out. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

For me, a picture should be like sparks. It must dazzle like the beauty of a woman or a poem. It must have radiance; it must be like those stones which Pyrenean shepherds use to light their pipes. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

The more ignoble I find life, the more strongly I react by contradiction, in humour and in an outburst of liberty and expansion. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I throw down the gauntlet to chance. For example, I prepare the ground for a picture by cleaning my brush over the canvas. Spilling a little turpentine can also be helpful. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

The more I work, the more I want to work. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Orson Scott Card

Miro, I'm so sorry. I always felt such pity for you humans because you could only think of one thing at a time and your memories were so imperfect and ... now I realize that just getting through the day without killing somebody can be an achievement.
It gets to be a habit. Most of us manage to keep our body count quite low. It's the neighborly way to live. — Orson Scott Card

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

My way is to seize an image the moment it has formed in my mind, to trap it as a bird and to pin it at once to canvas. Afterward I start to tame it, to master it. I bring it under control and I develop it. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I start from something considered dead and arrive at a world. And when I put a title on it, it becomes even more alive. — Joan Miro

Miro Quotes By Joan Miro

I work like a labourer on a farm or in a vineyard. Things come to me slowly. My vocabulary of forms, for instance, has not been the discovery of a day. It took shape in spite of myself ... That is why I am always working on a hundred different things at the same time. — Joan Miro
