For some reason I've been labeled that and it's fine, but there are a lot of other artists that sing real traditional stuff, so I don't know why they picked me. That's what I've always done.

Alan Jackson, musician

Admittedly, it is really our duty, as artists, to hold up a mirror to our own era; but, on the other hand, these works have lives of their own, and they're still alive today.

Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, musician

Because artists can be extremely eccentric and insane, and unfortunately, the people they hurt the most are the people that are closest to them.

I had been stockpiling Gospel songs for other artists, and had planned to submit them to Gospel artists.

The reason actors, artists, writers have agents is because we'll do it for nothing. That's a basic fact - you gotta do it.

Morgan Freeman, actor

An artist should create beautiful things, but should put nothing of his own life into them.

Oscar Wilde, dramatist

The refusal to rest content, the willingness to risk excess on behalf of one's obsessions, is what distinguishes artists from entertainers, and what makes some artists adventurers on behalf of us all.

John Updike, novelist

I think most artists create out of despair. The very nature of creation is not a performing glory on the outside, it's a painful, difficult search within.

Louise Berliawsky Nevelson, sculptor

An artist may have burdens the ordinary citizen doesn't know, but the ordinary citizen has burdens that many artists never even touch.

I love artists that just do what they do with so much passion and emotion.

Jessica Sanchez, musician

Artists are traditionally resistant to labels.

Patti Smith, musician

Artists instinctively want to reflect humanity, their own and each other's, in all its intermittent virtue and vitality, frailty and fallibility.

Tom Hiddleston, actor

At my second record label, they told me and other female artists that some of us were going on the chopping block. I was 19... and it was devastating.

Katy Perry, musician

The Constitution wanted artists to have control over their works because they knew it would create incentive to create more works. That is clearly still the goal.

Hilary Rosen, businesswoman

The notion of making money by popular work, and then retiring to do good work, is the most familiar of all the devil's traps for artists.

Logan Pearsall Smith, critic

Dear disgruntled artists: the key to success isn't kicking down the door; it's building your own.

Brian Celio, novelist

Country fans need to support country music by buying albums and concert tickets for traditional artists or the music will just fade away. And that would be really sad.

Unless artists can remember what it was to be a little boy, they are only half complete as artist and as man.

James Thurber, comedian

When you actually meet the devil and he offers you a deal most artists eventually negotiate.

Marc Maron, entertainer

Artists aren't really people. And I'm actually 40 per cent papier mache.

Steven Morrissey, musician

I think it's pretentious to create art just for the sake of stroking the artists ego.

Lou Reed, musician

Artists are just children who refuse to put down their crayons.

Al Hirschfeld, cartoonist

As I had collaborated with visual artists before whether on installations, on performance pieces, in the context of theatre works and as I had taught for a time in art colleges the idea of writing music in response to painting was not alien.

Gavin Bryars, composer

I've thought maybe of getting younger artists out doing stuff, like I used to do a lot of. I don't wanna do it day in and day out like I used to, but I still wanna do it.

Bootsy Collins, musician

And obviously, when I started out, I had a little bit more curiosity than some, and went seeking out the original artists, or in some cases searching up country music.

Elvis Costello, musician

God takes care of imbeciles, little children and artists.

Camille Pissarro, painter

I was totally involved in Bobby's World from the time we started the idea to sitting with the artists on how he would look, to the script meetings, the music, the lyrics, the songs.

Howie Mandel, comedian

I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.

John Steinbeck, author

I was lucky enough to first meet Elvis at his house in Bel Air and he used to invite different artists, singers and musicians, to come and jam with him at his house.

Jackie DeShannon, musician

It feels like my job is to support people. I support great artists. When I worked with a symphony, I sat in the third chair, not the first chair.

Nile Rodgers, musician

Artists speak the truth to the public without fear of retribution or damage to their careers.

Ron Silver, actor

I helped found Artists for New South Africa, but it used to be called Artists for Free South Africa. Alfre Woodard and a bunch of us started this.

Mary Steenburgen, actress

So ultimately, it's idealistic to think that artists are able to step away from the power of the media and the way it controls things, and go on doing their own things.

Thom Yorke, musician

True artists are almost the only men who do their work for pleasure.

Almost all the noblest things that have been achieved in the world, have been achieved by poor men; poor scholars, poor professional men, poor artisans and artists, poor philosophers, poets, and men of genius.

Jules Feiffer, cartoonist

A lot of the hip hop artists don't write music. They write words.

Roy Ayers, musician

I have been surrounded by artists and paintings throughout my life. My father Ted Dyer is an artist, and from a very early age I have spent time painting and drawing.

John Dyer, artist

Artists don't always know. Almost every song I ever recorded that was a hit at the majors that the promotional people picked I didn't think it would be a hit. I was wrong every time!

Roy Ayers, musician

I was being an artist, being sensitive and technical as artists are. I'm sure Leonardo Da Vinci did that. Artists don't always feel the same as others feel about their work.

Roy Ayers, musician

Most artists have contracts directly with the record company, and when they do music, all of their music is owned by the record company. But I did mine through a production company.

Roy Ayers, musician

Norman Granz, musician

The only people left in America who seem not to be artists are illustrators.

Brad Holland,

One of the interesting things here is that the people who should be shaping the future are politicians. But the political framework itself is so dead and closed that people look to other sources, like artists, because art and music allow people a certain freedom.

Thom Yorke, musician

Competitions are for horses, not artists.

Bela Bartok, composer

Some artists claim praise is irrelevant in measuring the success of art, but I think it's quite relevant. Besides, it makes me feel great.

Chris Van Allsburg, author

Every artist seems to me to have the job of bearing witness to the world we live in. To some extent I think of all of us as artists, because we have voices and we are each of us unique.

Jane Rule, author

All artists are people of growth. It's like food, you take the good and leave the rest.

Andrew Jack,

The world is crawling with authors touring now. They're like performance artists.

Kazuo Ishiguro, author

Talent can be developed, gift is God-given. But artists have both.

Carroll O'Connor, actor

I believe there is little to gain by exchanging opinions with other artists concerning either the ideology of art or technical methods.

Coming from Britain, I was terrified of meeting all these other artists, because artists over there tend to fight with each other a lot, the premise being that there's not enough room for everybody.

Thom Yorke, musician

Lesser artists borrow, great artists steal.

Igor Stravinsky, composer

Subjective artists are one-eyed, but objective artists are blind.

Georges Rouault, artist

My sisters were going out with artists and poets, and eventually it was the creative world which attracted me.

Luc Ferrari, composer

Genius can probably run on ahead and seek out new ways. But the good artists who follow after genius - and I count myself among these - have to restore the lost connection once more.

KaThe Kollwitz,

Instead of thinking that's a nice tune, you start thinking is it the right pace, is it the right tempo? That is the death nell for artists.

Alison Moyet, musician

It's not about battling the original artists when I record these songs, it's about paying tribute to them.

Etta James, musician

I was at the Royal Art School. That was a preparatory school specially for art teachers. You see, it was not so much for the development of artists. But we had there terribly stiff training.

Josef Albers, artist

We must declare ourselves, become known; allow the world to discover this subterranean life of ours which connects kings and farm boys, artists and clerks. Let them see that the important thing is not the object of love, but the emotion itself.

Gore Vidal, novelist

Next to the writer of real estate advertisements, the autobiographer is the most suspect of prose artists.

Donal Henahan,

Artists are like everybody else.

Damien Hirst, artist

Disco does work better with black artists or players. They just feel it more.

Giorgio Moroder, producer

We could ask artists from abroad to come in too, so that there could be a mixing and matching of skills from Europe, America and here which would widen our world.

Siobhan Davies, dancer

I think foreign countries really do like it when American artists sing in their language. And when you go over there and say, 'Hi, how are you?' in their language, they love it. It makes them feel like you're doing it just for them. We in America take so much for granted.

Natalie Cole, musician

I am selfish, but that's an attribute that all artists possess.

Robert Mapplethorpe, photographer

Not all are called to be artists in the specific sense of the term. Yet, as Genesis has it, all men and women are entrusted with the task of crafting their own life: in a certain sense, they are to make of it a work of art, a masterpiece.

Pope John Paul II, clergyman

Don't make art for other artists or for 'intellectuals', make art for people - and if you can touch just one person in a lifetime and make a difference - you have succeeded.

Ray Conniff, musician

Time and memory are true artists; they remould reality nearer to the heart's desire.

John Dewey, philosopher

For us artists there waits the joyous compromise through art with all that wounded or defeated us in daily life; in this way, not to evade destiny, as the ordinary people try to do, but to fulfil it in its true potential - the imagination.

Lawrence Durrell, writer

All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

Pablo Picasso, painter

Artists don't talk about art. Artists talk about work. If I have anything to say to young writers, it's stop thinking of writing as art. Think of it as work.

Paddy Chayefsky, dramatist

I look at the Samurai because they were the artists of their time. What I think struck me when I read Bushido is compassion. 'If there's no one there to help, go out and find someone to help.' That hit me, because I try to lead my life like that.

Tom Cruise, actor

There are a lot of female artists my age around at the moment, but they're all American and blonde and blue-eyed and smiley. I'm totally the opposite of that. I want to show a bit more attitude and I have an opinion.

Samantha Mumba, musician

I was mostly surprised by the rap artists, actually, that were influenced by Sabbath. That was a surprise. But it's very nice and I'm very honored. It's nice to know after 27 years now that what I said in the first place has stuck, and that was the belief in it.

Tony Iommi, musician

I want to invest and have my own record label and artists. I want to have a business where my kids, kids, kids will still have something going on long after I'm gone.

Chingy, musician

Most comic scriptwriters are very bad. The artists are good, but the writers are so bad.

Harry Harrison, author

I firmly believe that all human beings have access to extraordinary energies and powers. Judging from accounts of mystical experience, heightened creativity, or exceptional performance by athletes and artists, we harbor a greater life than we know.

Jean Houston, author

Those artists who say that somehow therapy or analysis will thwart their creativity are completely misinformed. It's absolutely the opposite: it opens closed doors.

Paul Schrader, director

Labels only confuse people. The smarter people recognize artists who transcend categories. But I always try to entertain. It's in my nature; writers are born to entertain. If that means working ostensibly within a genre, fine.

John Shirley, author

Well, first of all it's entertainment. That stops us becoming too pretentious or thinking we're great artists.

Richard Thompson, musician

I'd love to break America, like all artists do. It's a lot of work but, you know, it's got to be done!

Rachel Stevens, musician

These people are artists. These people are musicians. They're taking it out and trying to express it that way.

Marilyn Manson, musician

My songs are the reflection of how I think and how I feel in that moment. But I'm conscious of the fact that artists have a responsibility before the masses and they have to take care with their words.

Shakira, musician

There are two kinds of artists in this world; those that work because the spirit is in them, and they cannot be silent if they would, and those that speak from a conscientious desire to make apparent to others the beauty that has awakened their own admiration.

Anna Katharine Green, author

I've never understood why artists, who so often condescend to the cliches of their own culture, are so eager to embrace the cliches of cultures they know nothing about.

Brad Holland,

Many of the contradictions in Postmodern art come from the fact that we're trying to be artists in a democratic society. This is because in a democracy, the ideal is compromise. In art, it isn't.

Brad Holland,

I do not deny that I have made drawings and watercolors of an erotic nature. But they are always works of art. Are there no artists who have done erotic pictures?

Egon Schiele, artist

Many people think voice over artists just read, there's much more to it. Without acting beats, scene study and improving skills, you won't make it.

Tara Strong, actress
