Käthe Kollwitz

"Look at life with the eyes of a child. "

"My art is not a form of studio art but an art that has living roots."
"I have never worked coldly ... but rather, in a certain sense, with my own blood. Those who see my art must feel that."
"My work is not pure art. Nevertheless it is art. Every artist works in his own vein. I want my art to serve a purpose; I want it to have an impact in this day and age, when people are so desperate and in need of help."
"I felt that I had no right to shirk my responsibility to act as an advocate. I must voice the enormous and endless suffering of humanity. This is my duty, though it is not easy to fulfill. "
"Look at life with the eyes of a child. "
"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."
"There are moments on most days when I feel a deep and sincere gratitude, when I sit at the open window and there is a blue sky or moving clouds."
