Art and Truth

"Truth is something so noble that if God could turn aside from it, I would keep to the truth and let God go." - Meister Johann Eckhart, 14th Century German mystic

"Artistic growth is, more than anything else, a refining of the sense of truthfulness. The stupid believe that to be truthful is easy; only the great artist knows how difficult it is." - Willa Cather

"The truth must dazzle gradually / or every man be blind." - Emily Dickinson

"I can't work completely out of my imagination. I must put my foot in a bit of truth; and then I can fly free." - Andrew Wyeth
