“We are able to feel and learn very quickly through music, through art, through poetry some spiritual things that we would otherwise learn very slowly.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“I can fully understand [that] artists want to be able to pay their bills. As a fan of art, and art as a way to shift dialogue and address cultural issues, there’s a part of me that’s really, really saddened by that and can’t really relate to it.”

 

Bruce Pavitt

“I thought I might have to give up art, but I couldn’t think of anything else to do.”

 

Bruce Nauman

“What I am really concerned about is what art is supposed to be – and can become.”

“If I was an artist, and I was in the studio, then whatever I was doing in the studio must be art.”

 

Bruce Nauman

“In art, the only one who really knows whether what you’ve done is honest is the artist.”

 

Bruce Nauman

“When I was in art school, I thought art was something I would learn how to do, and then I would just do it. At a certain point I realized that it wasn’t going to work like that. Basically, I would have to start over every day and figure out what art was going to be.”

 

Bruce Nauman

“What is it that an artist does when he is left alone in his studio? My conclusion was that if I was an artist and I was in the studio, then everything I was doing in the studio should be art . . . . From that point on, art became more of an activity and less of a product.”

 

Bruce Nauman

“All martial art is simply an honest expression of one’s body — with a lot of deception in between.”

“I hope martial artists are more interested in the root of martial arts and not the different decorative branches, flowers or leaves.”

 

Bruce Lee

“iStockphoto was revolutionizing the stock photography industry, establishing a whole new business model and democratizing stock art for everyone. It made sense for the industry-leading stock image company to take iStock to the next stage of growth, serving all markets at every price point.”

 

Bruce Livingstone

“My greatest passion has always been connecting with creative people, appreciating the artistic and discovering fresh perspectives on the world. I came on board to use my experience in building an international community of photographers, illustrators and video artists at iStockphoto who learned, grew and sold their work to millions around the world. Building a community that large requires personality, a keen sense of what both the contributing artists and the buying audience need, and an ability to balance both. I wanted very much to transfer those skills to the fine art world.”

 

Bruce Livingstone

“I hope martial artists are more interested in the root of martial arts and not the different decorative branches, flowers or leaves. It is futile to argue as to which leaf, which design of branches, or which attractive flower you like; when you understand the root, you understand all its blossoming.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Good technique includes quick changes, great variety and speed. It may be a system of reversals much like a concept of God and the Devil. In the speed of events, which one is really in charge? Do they change places with lightning speed? The Chinese believe so. To put the heart of the martial arts in your own heart and have it be a part of you means total comprehension.”

 

Bruce Lee

“The martial arts are based upon understanding, hard work and a total comprehension of skills. Power training and the use of force are easy, but total comprehension of all of the skills of the martial arts is very difficult to achieve.”

 

Bruce Lee

“When you’re talking about fighting, as it is, with no rules, well then, baby you’d better train every part of your body!”

 

Bruce Lee

“Self-knowledge is the basis of jeet kune do because it is effective not only for the individual’s martial art but also for his life as a human being.”
