Art has the qualities of aesthetic beauty, purity, transcendence.
Beauty is the resplendence of the truth.
Art is the highest form of hope.
Art is the only clean thing on earth, except holiness.
If we ignore the need of beauty, we find ourselves in a spiritual desert.
Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.
To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist.
Art is not a thing; it is a way.
Our feeling for beauty is a spiritual and not a sensual emotion.
Oh, beauty, ever ancient and ever new.
