Quote of the Day
Drawing on my fine command of the English language, I said nothing.
Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.
I was quiet, a loner. I was one of those children where, if you put me in a room and gave me some crayons and a pencils, you wouldn't hear from me for nine straight hours. And I was always drawing racing cars and rockets and spaceships and planes, things that were very fast that would take me away.
Drawing is like making an expressive gesture with the advantage of permanence.
When I see a white piece of paper, I feel I've got to draw. And drawing, for me, is the beginning of everything.
Mickey Mouse popped out of my mind onto a drawing pad 20 years ago on a train ride from Manhattan to Hollywood at a time when business fortunes of my brother Roy and myself were at lowest ebb and disaster seemed right around the corner.
Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.
John W. Gardner
I start drawing, and eventually the characters involve themselves in a situation. Then in the end, I go back and try to cut out most of the preachments.
Photography is an immediate reaction, drawing is a meditation.
I loved painting and drawing for many reasons. One of them was that all it really required was me, a pencil and a pad. It was something I was passionate about, and still am.
By an irony of fate, my first employment was as a draughtsman. I hated drawing; it was for me the very worst of annoyances. Fortunately, it was not long before I secured the position I sought, that of chief electrician to the telephone company.
In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing.
Vincent Van Gogh

A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.
Drawing is rather like playing chess: your mind races ahead of the moves that you eventually make.
Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity?
There's always room out there for the hand-drawn image. I personally like the imperfection of hand drawing as opposed to the slick look of computer animation. But you can do good stuff either way. The Pixar movies are amazing in what they do, but there's plenty of independent animators who are doing really amazing things as well.
Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts.
William Strunk, Jr.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
