If a poet has a dream, it is not of becoming famous, but of being believed.
-Jean Cocteau 法国作家
Put blinders on to the things that conspire to hold you back, especially the ones in your own head.
-Meryl Streep 美国艺人
Don't talk unless you can improve the silence.
-Jorge Luis Borges 阿根廷作家
What do you think an artist is? An imbecile who only has eyes, if he is a painter, or ears if he is a musician... or even, if he is a boxer, just his muscles? Far from it: at the same time he is also a political being, constantly aware of the heartbreaking, passionate, or delightful things that happen in the world, shaping himself completely in their image... No, painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war.
你以为艺术家是什么？画家便是只要眼睛的低能儿，或许假如他是音乐家，就只要一双耳朵…... 又或许，徒有一身肌肉的拳击手？不是这样的：一个艺术家一起也是一个政治人物，不断意识到国际上发作的那些令人心碎的、充溢热情的或令人愉快的作业，再以此刻画自己的形象…… 不，完结一幅绘画不是为了装修公寓。它也是一种战役东西。
-Pablo Picasso 西班牙画家
I long for a kind of quiet where I can just drift and dream.
-David Lynch 美国导演
Let them talk... don't forget that opinions are easy. They are not in your shoes. Be an artist, don't listen, only answer to yourself.
-Rinus Van de Velde 比利时艺术家
I was by myself for a pretty long time. I needed to do that. I think everyone that I know has wanted to do that or needed to do that at some point. I think when you spend enough time when it's quiet around you and you don't open your mouth for three or four days, there's parts of your brain that can kind of rest. I think when we're out in the world and we have to talk to people, we edit ourselves. You know, we have to like, act a little bit. As honest as we may be as humans, when we're out here, we're all kind of wearing mirrors on our faces. You know, constantly reacting to how to react to the people around you. And I think when you're alone for a long enough time, you can feel a lot.
-Justin Vernon 美国歌手
Everyone's opinions about things change over time. Nothing is constant. Everything changes. And to hold onto some dogged idea forever is a little rigid and maybe naive.
-Frida Kahlo 墨西哥画家
The writer who refuses to explore the darker regions of the heart will never be able to write convincingly about the wonder, the magic and the joy of love... just as goodness cannot be trusted unless it has breathed the same air as evil.
-Nick Cave 澳大利亚歌手
People still sit around and think, 'When's it gonna come...' And that's the wrong way. You're facing the wrong way, you're facing away from it. You have to go, 'It's here, it's here, it's here.'
-Jim Carrey 加拿大艺人
I can't belong to groups. I've tried. I behave normally, but people don't look at me normally... they expect everyone to be like them.
-Jeanne Moreau 法国艺人
Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is.
-Ernest Hemingway 美国作家
There were people who went to sleep last night, poor and rich and white and black, but they will never wake again. So you watch yourself about complaining. What you're supposed to do when you don't like a thing is change it. If you can't change it, change the way you think about it.
-Maya Angelou 美国作家
What we know of other people is only our memory of the moments during which we knew them. And they have changed since then. To pretend that they and we are the same is useful and convenient social convention which must sometimes be broken. We must remember that at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.
-T.S. Eliot 英国诗人
This is my simple religion. No need for temples. No need for complicated philosophy. Your own mind, your own heart is the temple. Your philosophy is simple kindness.
-Dalai Lama 达赖喇嘛
We're seeking perfection, even if we know it's virtually impossible to find... We are meticulous. It drives some... mad, but we want everything to be as good as it can.
-Freddie Mercury 英国歌手
The world you see is just a movie in your mind. Rocks don't see it. Bless and sit down. Forgive and forget. Practice kindness all day to everybody and you will realize you're already in heaven now. That's the story. That's the message. Nobody understands it, nobody listens, they're all running around like chickens with heads cut off. I will try to teach it but it will be in vain, s'why I'll end up in a shack praying and being cool and singing by my woodstove making pancakes.
-Jack Kerouac 美国作家
You have to show it in your eyes and in your attitude... honesty has to come from your whole body.
-Jean Reno 法国艺人
My dear, in the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love... In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. I realized, through it all, that... in the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there's something stronger... something better, pushing right back.
亲爱的，在仇视中，我发现心里里有一种不行打败的爱…... 紊乱之中，心里有一种不行打败的安静。经过这全部，我意识到…... 在仲冬的时分，心里有一个不行打败的夏天。这让我很快乐。由于它说，不管国际多么尽力地对立我，在我的心里里都有种更强壮、更夸姣的东西，在与之抗衡。
-Albert Camus 法国作家
You may be 38 years old, as I happen to be. And one day, some great opportunity stands before you and calls you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great casue. And you refuse to do it because you are afraid... You refuse to do it because you want to live longer... You're afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity, or you're afraind that somebody will stab you, or shoot at you or bomb your house; so you refuse to take the stand. Well, you may go on and live until you are 90, but you're just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90. And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit.
你或许现已38岁了，就像我相同。有一天，一个巨大的时机摆在你面前，召唤你为一些巨大的准则，一些巨大的问题或一些巨大的原因站起来。你回绝这样做，由于你惧怕…... 你回绝这样做由于你想活得更长...… 你惧怕丢掉作业，惧怕被批判，惧怕失掉威望，惧怕有人捅你、朝你开枪，或是摧毁你的房子，所以你回绝站出来。嗯，或许你能够一向活到90岁，但早在你38岁的时分就现已好像90岁相同死去了。生命里呼吸的中止只不过是对精力早逝迟来的宣告。
-Martin Luther King Jr. 美国社会活动家
Dreams without movement are delusions, escape, kid's play. You have to put your feet into your dreams if they're ever going to be reality.
-Paul Newman 美国艺人
