Paul Klee Quotes
One eye sees, the other feels.

A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.
Art does not reproduce what we see; rather, it makes us see.
A line is a dot that went for a walk.
The painter should not paint what he sees, but what will be seen.
Color possesses me. I don't have to pursue it. It will possess me always, I know it. That is the meaning of this happy hour: Color and I are one. I am a painter.

Everything vanishes around me, and works are born as if out of the void. Ripe, graphic fruits fall off. My hand has become the obedient instrument of a remote will.
When looking at any significant work of art, remember that a more significant one probably has had to be sacrificed.
One does not lash hat lies at a distance. The foibles that we ridicule must at least be a little bit our own. Only then will the work be a part of our own flesh. The garden must be weeded.
