Pablo Picasso: The Chief Enemy of Creativity

pablo picasso portrait cat

“Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working.”

“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.”

“The world today doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?”

“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

“The chief enemy of creativity is ‘good’ sense.”

“I’d like to live as a poor man with lots of money.”

“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”

“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”

“Youth has no age.”

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

  1. I gotta agree with the quotes, as cliche’ as they may be. I recently discovered acrylic pouring (see annemarie ridderhof on youtube) and have discovered my inner “child artist” – and am making plans, setting goals and acting on them – no plan is perfect, but taking action opens up possibilities and opportunities. Art doesn’t have to make sense to everyone, whatever that art may be – words, images, feelings, experiences. :-)
    Peace.
