46,426.  I don’t consider myself a musician who has achieved perfection and can’t develop any further.  But I compose my pieces with a formula that I created myself.  Take a musician like John Coltrane.  He is a perfect musician, who can give expression to all the possibilities of his instrument.  But he seems to have difficulty expressing original ideas on it.  That is why he keeps looking for ideas in exotic places.  At least I don’t have that problem, because, like I say, I find my inspiration in myself.  (Jazz & Music & Inspiration)  Thelonious Monk

 

 

46,432.  You know, John Coltrane has been sort of a god to me.  Seems like, in a way, he didn’t get the inspiration out of other musicians.  He had it.  When you hear a cat do a thing like that, you got to go along with him.  I think I heard Coltrane before I really got close to Miles [Davis].  Miles had a tricky way of playing his horn that I didn't understand as much as I did Coltrane.  I really didn’t understand what Coltrane was doing, but it was so exciting the thing that he was doing.  (Jazz & Inspiration)  Wes Montgomery, cited Downbeat 1961

 

 

10,621.  Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working.  (Artists: Picasso & Inspiration)  Pablo Picasso

 

 

11,726.  I always thought that inspiration is for amateurs.  The rest of us just show up and get to work.  You sign on to a process and see where it takes you.  You don’t have to invent the wheel every day.  Today you’ll do what you did yesterday and tomorrow you’ll do what you did today.  Eventually you'll get somewhere.  Every great idea I ever had grew out of work itself.  If you’re going to wait a around for the clouds to open up and lightning to strike you in the brain you’re not going to make an awful lot of work.  (Art & Inspiration)  Chuck Close        

 

 

77,331.  I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean.  (Instinct & Inspiration & Poetry)  Socrates

 

 

80,985.  Method is much, technique is much, but inspiration is even more.  (Method & Inspiration)  Benjamin Cardozo
