Pablo Picasso




“Art is the elimination of the unnecessary. ”

“I paint objects as I think them not as I see them.”



“It takes a long time to become young.”

“Everything is a miracle. It is a miracle that one does not dissolve in one’s bath like a lump of sugar.”



“Action is the foundational key to all success.”


“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.”

“What one does is what counts and not what one had the intention of doing.”

“Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.”

“Unless your work gives you trouble, it is no good.”


“Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.”

“I am always doing things I can’t do, that’s how I get to do them.”

“Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.”

“He can who thinks he can, and he can’t who thinks he can’t. This is an inexorable, indisputable law.”

“It is your work in life that is your ultimate seduction.”

“The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.”
