Art is a discovery and development of elementary principles of nature into beautiful forms suitable for human use.
Frank Lloyd Wright, writing in 1957, as cited in Frank Lloyd Wright on Architecture, Nature, and the Human Spirit: A Collection of Quotations:
Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.
Oscar Wilde in The Soul of Man Under Socialism:
Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
Thomas Merton in No Man Is An Island:
Above all, artists must not be only in art galleries or museums—they must be present in all possible activities. The artist must be the sponsor of thought in whatever endeavor people take on, at every level.
Michelangelo Pistoletto in Art's Responsibility:
Popova, Maria. "What is Art? A Few Famous Definitions from Antiquity to Today." The Atlantic. Web. 9 June 2013.
