"Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don't start measuring her limbs."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Pablo Picasso on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Pablo Picasso on Victor Hugo
"Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she's beautiful but don't have anything to talk about, it's going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person."Pablo Picasso on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Pablo Picasso on Anne Roiphe
"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."Pablo Picasso on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"It takes a long time to become young."
"Youth has no age."
"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls."
"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."
"Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun."
