Art

Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success. - Brian Adam
One of the great arts in living is to learn the art of accurately appraising values. Everything that we think, that we earn, that we have given to us, that in any way touches our consciousness, has its own value. These values are apt to change with the mood, with time, or because of circumstances. We cannot safely tie to any material value. The values of all material possessions change continually, sometimes over night. The real values are those that stay by you, give you happiness and enrich you. They are the human values. - George Matthew Adams
Our religious art is advertising. Our sainthood is fame. -
Make no man your idol; for the best man must have faults, and his faults will usually become yours in addition to your own. This is as true in art as in morals. -
Moral virtue can be without some of the intellectual virtues, namely, wisdom, science and art, but not without understanding and prudence. Moral virtue cannot be without prudence, because moral virtue is habit of choosing, that is, making us choose well. -
It is a sad fact about our culture that a poet can earn much more money writing or talking about his art than he can by practicing it. - W. H. Auden, fully Wystan Hugh Auden
The art of living lies less in eliminating our troubles than in growing with them. - Bernard Baruch, fully Bernard Mannes Baruch
Art is the soul of the people. - Romare Bearden, fully Romate Howard Bearden
When hospitality becomes an art, it loses its very soul. - Max Beerbohm, fully Sir Henry Maximilian "Max" Beerbohm
The Art of Teaching does not consist only of instruction in the three R's. There is more to teaching than conveying information. Teaching is the continuous process of building character, establishing moral attitudes, creating respect for the good way of life and distaste for the lightheaded and irresponsible mode of existence. - Samuel Belkin
