Love Monet? Here are ten memorable quotes:

“I must have flowers, always, and always.”

“Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything,
my head is bursting with it.”

“Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love.”

“I would like to paint the way a bird sings.”

“When you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have before you, a tree, a house, a field or whatever. Merely think here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow, and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact color and shape.”

“I can only draw what I see.”

“The Seine. I have painted it all my life, at all hours of the day, at all times of the year, from Paris to the sea … Argenteuil, Poissy, Vétheuil, Giverny, Rouen, Le Havre.”

“Color is my daylong obsession, joy, and torment.”

“To see, we must forget the name of the things we are looking at.”

“Now I really feel the landscape. I can be bold and include every tone of pink and blue: it’s enchanting, it’s delicious.”
