Baroque Quotes

Text Versions
Crazy people do not apply the principle of scientific parsimony... They shoot for the baroque  (Baroque Quotes) Prose is architecture, not interior decoration, and the Baroque is over  (Baroque Quotes) I’ve always been heavily influenced by classical music, mostly by baroque music  (Baroque Quotes) I listen to music when I write. I need the musical background. Classical music. I’m behind the times. I’m still with Baroque music, Gregorian chant, the requiems, and with the quartets of Beethoven and Brahms. That is what I need for the climate, for the surroundings, for the landscape: the music.  (Baroque Quotes) In fact, the underlying principle of the baroque is the idea of transformation, of movement, and animals becoming man, and man becoming animals, and mythology. It was a way to inspire pre-Christian character.  (Baroque Quotes) I like Modernism. I grew up around these sort of eclectic, heavily carved, baroque, rococo, highly ornamented styles that were in my life from the time that I was a child until now in my business life. So I like clean, straight, minimalist lines.  (Baroque Quotes) What I like about baroque is the reemergence of pre-Christian religion. The art of baroque mixes ancient pre-Christian myths with Christian imagery and each reflects upon the other.  (Baroque Quotes) Cookbooks have all become baroque and very predictable. I'm looking for something different. A lot of chefs' cookbooks are food as it's done in the restaurants, but they are dumbed down, and I hate it when they dumb them down  (Baroque Quotes) Some people go to Berlin to get more cutting edge; I went and started wearing lederhosen and going to visit baroque palaces.  (Baroque Quotes) Baroque sculpture and interior design has a quality of creating an environment that seems organic because it’s full of curves and details, like a forest.  (Baroque Quotes) The Bedlam that greeted James Tilly Matthews, then, was not so much a baroque spectacle of depravity as an exhausted and run-down public institution, its building falling apart and its professional image tarnished.  (Baroque Quotes) I’ve always been heavily influenced by classical music, mostly by baroque music  (Baroque Quotes) I think of reading like a balanced diet; if your sentences are too baggy, too baroque, cut back on fatty Foster Wallace, say, and pick up Kafka as roughage.  (Baroque Quotes) Music always stimulates my imagination. When I’m writing I usually have some Baroque music on low in the background chamber music by Bach, Telemann, and the like.  (Baroque Quotes) Not unless I do all these ancient and Italian or French or Baroque in the beginnning, I do German  (Baroque Quotes) But then life is never neat, it is made up of doors and trapdoors. You move down baroque corridors, and even when you think you know which door to open, you still need to have the courage to choose  (Baroque Quotes) My father was a classical singer of baroque music, and my older sister was in musical theatre, and I thought about doing the same thing but then realised straight acting was for me  (Baroque Quotes) A contemporary artist can use the findings of all epochs and all styles, from the most primitive literary expressions up to the most refined products of the baroque  (Baroque Quotes) For my own singing, I used to be attracted by the baroque, the flashier the better, but now I prefer a simpler, purer style  (Baroque Quotes) It's art that pushes against psychological and social expectations, that tries to transform decay into something generative, that is replicative in a baroque way, that isn't about progress, and wants to - as Walt Whitman put it - 'contain multitudes.'  (Baroque Quotes) The way Fatboy Slim layers motifs is the same as 18th-century baroque counterpoint. You have an idea, then you have an answer to the idea in another voice, then you have a counter idea accompanying the original idea, and you build up your texture like that. I’m really into Kruder and Dorfmeister at the moment, and they do the same thing.  (Baroque Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
