Be inspired with Art Lover’s Quotation Book

What is art? “Art is a humanitarian act. Art should be able to affect mankind, to make the world a better place,” according to artist Jeff Koons.

That’s one of the many quotes about art and its impact on life in newly released The Art Lover’s Quotation Book: An Inspired Collection on Art, Beauty & Creativity.

As a writer, I like to think of myself as something of an artist. I’m not a painter or an illustrator, but I still like to create and evoke emotion through words. 

This quote from the book sums up what motivates me to write my favorite stories: “All important things in art have always originated from the deepest feeling about the mystery of Being.”

I hope through the stories I tell that I can shed light on an issue or move a heart to action. As Edgar Degas said, “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”

It’s a quick read and a short collection that gives the reader pause to think about what art is, who it’s for, and why we need it.
