I love using quotes. There is just something about them, the way they are written, the strength of few words so succinctly combined. Quotes make the reader think not only about the words but about the source. They are simple phrases that pack a punch! I love to include them under the signature of my email, scrawled across the board, or branded on the bottom of my parent communications.

2. “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” – Pablo Picasso

5. “Art is what you can get away with.” – Andy Warhol
6. “I paint self-portraits because I am the person I know best.” -Frida Kahlo
7. “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Ghandi
8. “Be yourself, because those who matter don’t mind, and those who mind don’t matter.” – Dr. Suess
