Try this site:

The mailer (inside) cover of School Arts Magazine has, over the years
included artists' quotes. If you don't have them let me know and I'll try
to send them to you.


And here's some from the list:

>"Once we thought if we sat a million monkeys down at a million typewriters
>we'd get the works of Shakespeare. Now that we have the Web, we know this
>isn't true." --anonymous
>some useful quotations to ponder on
>ARt is I;Science is We.
> claude bernard
>Life without industry is guilt, and industry without art is brutality.
> -john ruskin
>Art takes nature as its model.
> -aristotle
>If the artist sees nothing within hhim, then he should also refrain from
>painting what he sees before hiim.
> -caspar david friedrich
>Art is not the bread, but the wine of life.
> -John paul richter
>All art is but imitation of nature.
> -seneca
>The aim off art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but
>their inward significance.
> -aristotle
>A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.
