Text Quotes
I will be an artist. I am sure I will. [Vincent Van Gogh]  (Irving Stone Quotes) Being mad is even pleasant. But only a madman understands that  (Irving Stone Quotes) It’s so easy to love. The only hard thing is to be loved. [Vincent Van Gogh]  (Irving Stone Quotes) Strange story about Degas. He hated women, didn’t want to be with them. Yet he spent much of his life painting them. He had seen his father maltreat his mother, must have had a deep fear that he’d do the same thing.  (Irving Stone Quotes) Listen, my friend, all forms that exist in God’s universe can be found in the human figure. A man’s body and face can tell everything he represents. So how could I ever exhaust my interest in it?  (Irving Stone Quotes) Every human life had its pattern that had to be worked out slowly to its ultimate conclusion  (Irving Stone Quotes) His mind was like a soup dish, wide and shallow  (Irving Stone Quotes) There are neither good nor evil, only the existence and action  (Irving Stone Quotes) All artists are crackpots. And it’s their finest feature  (Irving Stone Quotes) Misery is the only thing in the world that has no end or edge  (Irving Stone Quotes) Religion will never show the way  (Irving Stone Quotes) No artist is normal. Who happen to be normal cannot be an artist  (Irving Stone Quotes) Reading is a stout-hearted activity, disporting courage, keenness, stick-to-it-ness. It is also, in my experience, one of the most thrilling and enduring delights of life, equal to a home run, a slam-dunk, or breaking the four-minute mile  (Irving Stone Quotes) The biographical novel sets out to document this truth, for character is plot, character development is action, and character fulfillment is resolution  (Irving Stone Quotes) The writer ... an athlete required to break the four-minute mile every morning.  (Irving Stone Quotes) There’s nothing romantic about my work... I don’t believe in inspiration. I believe that you get to your desk, you stay there, you work, you think of nothing else. You write and you write, and in the end, you write something good.  (Irving Stone Quotes) My goal always is to tell a universal story, meaning it’s about a person who has an idea, a vision, a dream, an ambition to make the world somewhat less chaotic.  (Irving Stone Quotes) Drawing is the poet’s written line, set down to see if there be a story worth telling, a truth worth revealing.  (Irving Stone Quotes) I came down successfully through Picasso and Braque, down through Pollock, I guess, but I began to stop at Franz Kline and the Abstractionists. I like their design, brilliant design, marvelous color layers. But I don’t find any human content there. I’m from an old school, and painting has to have human content for me.  (Irving Stone Quotes) Even if there is endless documentation, it would be impossible to know what a man thought inside his own mind... This is where the novelist’s creative imagination has to take over.  (Irving Stone Quotes) Do not call yourself old. A man is as old as the creative force within him.  (Irving Stone Quotes) I spend several years trying to get inside the brain and heart of my subjects, listening to the interior monologues in their letters, and when I have to bridge the chasms between the factual evidence, I try to make an intuitive leap through the eyes and motivation of the person I’m writing about.  (Irving Stone Quotes) In the biographical novel, there’s only one person involved. I, the author, spend two to five years becoming the main character. I do that so by the time you get to the bottom of Page 2 or 3, you forget your name, where you live, your profession and the year it is. You become the main character of the book. You live the book.  (Irving Stone Quotes) The biographical novel is a true and documented story of one human being’s journey across the face of the years, transmuted from the raw material of life into the delight and purity of an authentic art form.  (Irving Stone Quotes) Life’s not so bad after all. There are not only poison but also antidotes.  (Irving Stone Quotes) From out of pain, beauty  (Irving Stone Quotes) God did not create us to abandon us  (Irving Stone Quotes) A man who has not suffered has nothing to tell with his paintings  (Irving Stone Quotes) The maximum value of art is that it allows the artist to express himself  (Irving Stone Quotes) I do not know a better cure for mental illness than a book  (Irving Stone Quotes)
