Famous quotes containing the words michelangelo buonarroti, michelangelo and/or buonarroti:

    His hope is treacherous only whose love dies
    With beauty, which is varying every hour;
    But, in chaste hearts uninfluenced by the power
    Of outward change, there blooms a deathless flower,
    That breathes on earth the air of paradise.
    Michelangelo Buonarroti (1474–1564)

    In art, one idea is as good as another. If one takes the idea of trembling, for instance, all of a sudden most art starts to tremble. Michelangelo starts to tremble. El Greco starts to tremble. All the Impressionists start to tremble.
    Willem De Kooning (b. 1904)

    Do thou, then breathe those thoughts into my mind
    By which such virtue may in me be bred
    That in thy holy footsteps I may tread:
    The fetters of my tongue do thou unbind,
    That I may have the power to sing of thee
    And sound thy praises everlastingly
    —Michelangelo Buonarroti (1474–1564)
