„I do not consider myself a Cubist either because I have come to the conclusion that cubes are not always made for expressing the thought of the brain and of the feeling of the spirit... I capture all these impressions [the visual sensations, Picabia sensed in the modern city] without any hurry to transfer to the canvas. I let them rest in my brain and then, when I'm visited by the spirit of creation, I improvise my paintings just as a musician improvises his music.“

„I am most anxious to get into my London painting-room, for I do not consider myself at work unless I am before a six-foot canvas. I have done a good deal of skying for I am determined to conquer all difficulties, and that among the rest.“

—  John Constable English Romantic painter 1776 - 1837

„I can sing in my brain…I sing in my brain all the time. It’s not quite the same as doing it physically. There’s a physical feeling in singing that’s just like skiing down a hill. Except better, because I’m not a very good skier.“

—  Linda Ronstadt American pop singer 1946

„I said I could to get the part. It made me go slightly mad, because my brain would be spinning all night. But after my big fight scene, where it was just kick, kick, kick, turn, in a freezing graveyard at 5am, I remember coming home on fire, because my brain hadn't kicked in once. Which was really, really a relief.“

„At the coast you can see the most beautiful sea. I also made my panorama there. I regard it as my most important work; because it gives such a huge impression of nature. But I don't like to start it all again; to paint sixteen hundred meters of canvas there..“

—  Hendrik Willem Mesdag painter from the Northern Netherlands 1831 - 1915

translation from original Dutch: Fons Heijnsbroek

(original Dutch: citaat van Hendrik Willem Mesdag, in het Nederlands:) Aan de kust zie je de mooiste zee. Daar heb ik ook mijn panorama gemaakt. Dat beschouw ik als mijn belangrijkste werk; omdat 't zoo'n groote impressie geeft van de natuur. Maar'k zou 't niet graag nog's weer beginnen; daar zestien honderd meter doek te schilderen..

Quote of Mesdag (after 1881), cited by Godfried Bomans?, in magazine De Volkskrant, 23 July, 1966
after 1880
