Henri Matisse Quotes (Author of Jazz)
Don't wait for inspiration. It comes while one is working. Color was not given to us in order that we should imitate Nature. It was given to us so that we can express our emotions. There are always flowers for those who want to see them. Creative people are curious, flexible, and independent with a tremendous spirit and a love of play.

I only paint the difference between things. I do not literally paint that table, but the emotion it produces upon me. Art should be something like a good armchair in which to rest from physical fatigue.
I desire pleasure.
