"Beauty is as relative as light and dark. Thus, there exists no beautiful woman, none at all, because you are never certain that a still far more beautiful woman will not appear and completely shame the supposed beauty of the first."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Paul Klee on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Paul Klee 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."Paul Klee on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Paul Klee 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."Paul Klee on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age."
"Art does not reproduce what we see rather, it makes us see."
"The art of mastering life is the prerequisite for all further forms of expression, whether they are paintings, sculptures, tragedies, or musical compositions."
"The worst state of affairs is when science begins to concern itself with art."
"To emphasize only the beautiful seems to me to be like a mathematical system that only concerns itself with positive numbers."
