Egon Schiele | Quotes / Le lettere

  • Art cannot be modern. Art is primordially eternal.
  • Bodies have their own light which they consume to live: they burn, they are not lit from the outside.
  • I must see new things and investigate them. I want to taste dark water and see crackling trees and wild winds.
  • At present, I am mainly observing the physical motion of mountains, water, trees and flowers. One is everywhere reminded of similar movements in the human body, of similar impulses of joy and suffering in plants...
  • I was in love with everything- I wanted to look with love at the angry people so that their eyes would be forced to respond; and I wanted to bring gifts to the envious and tell them that I am worthless.
