10 artists quotes to live by

dali's quote

When we write, speak, read, sometimes magical things happen. The words seem to perfectly fall out into place as they resonate through our souls. I’ll admit it, I am a “quote addicted” person. I look for new inspiring quotes at least once a day (usually on Pinterest, while drinking my morning coffee) to bring me some inspiration and motivation through the day. 

I love quotes because they can be very helpful to put words on feelings or thoughts we have difficulties explaining. They are a great way to uplift your mood and sometimes create values and drive for a lifetime.

As a quote addicted person and an art lover I thought I’d share with you today my top 10 all time favorite artist quotes.
