Paul Gauguin quotes (16)

A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes that he has got the biggest piece.
Paul Gauguin   Category:

Art is either plagiarism or revolution.
Paul Gauguin   Category: Art

Art requires philosophy, just as philosophy requires art. Otherwise, what would become of beauty?
Paul Gauguin   Category:

Civilization is what makes you sick.
Paul Gauguin   Category:

Concentrate your strengths against your competitor's relative weaknesses.
Paul Gauguin   Category:

I shut my eyes in order to see.
Paul Gauguin   Category:

In art, all who have done something other than their predecessors have merited the epithet of revolutionary; and it is they alone who are masters.
Paul Gauguin   Category:

It is the eye of ignorance that assigns a fixed and unchangeable color to every object; beware of this stumbling block.
Paul Gauguin   Category: Imagination

Life being what it is, one dreams of revenge.
Paul Gauguin   Category:

Life has no meaning unless one lives it with a will, at least to the limit of one's will. Virtue, good, evil are nothing but words, unless one takes them apart in order to build something with them; they do not win their true meaning until one knows how to apply them.
Paul Gauguin   Category:

Life is hardly more than a fraction of a second. Such a little time to prepare oneself for eternity!
Paul Gauguin   Category:

Many excellent cooks are spoilt by going into the arts.
Paul Gauguin   Category:

Stressing output is the key to improving productivity, while looking to increase activity can result in just the opposite.
Paul Gauguin   Category:

The history of modern art is also the history of the progressive loss of art's audience. Art has increasingly become the concern of the artist and the bafflement of the public.
Paul Gauguin   Category: Art

There is always a heavy demand for fresh mediocrity. In every generation the least cultivated taste has the largest appetite.
Paul Gauguin   Category:

We never really know what stupidity is until we have experimented on ourselves.
