"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."
"Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."Paul Klee on Mark Twain
"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young."Paul Klee on Henry Ford
"Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been."Paul Klee on Mark Twain
"True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country."Paul Klee on Kurt Vonnegut
"A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age."Paul Klee on Robert Frost
"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."
"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."
"To emphasize only the beautiful seems to me to be like a mathematical system that only concerns itself with positive numbers."
