Art Quotes by Salvador Dalí

Quote 1: Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.

Quote 2:
You have to systematically create confusion, it sets creativity free. Everything that is contradictory creates life.

Quote 3:
People love mystery, and that is why they love my paintings.

Quote 4: One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.

Quote 5:
Have no fear of perfection, you'll never reach it.

Quote 6: There is only one difference between a madman and me. I am not mad.

Quote 7:
The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.

Quote 8:
We are all hungry and thirsty for concrete images. Abstract art will have been good for one thing: to restore its exact virginity to figurative art.

Quote 9: Instead of stubbornly attempting to use surrealism for purposes of subversion, it is necessary to try to make of surrealism something as solid, complete and classic as the works of museums.

Quote 11: Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.
