Canvas Quotations

This world is but a canvas to our imagination.
Henry David Thoreau

There are times you can't really see or even feel how sweet life can be. Hopefully its mountains will be higher than its valleys are deep. I know things that are broken can be fixed. Take the punch if you have to, hit the canvas and then get up again. Life is worth it.
Queen Latifah

Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint you can at it.
Danny Kaye

Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.
Voltaire

An empty canvas is full.
Robert Rauschenberg
