Quotes about aesthetics


1. Art is an invention of aesthetics, which in turn is an invention of philosophers... What we call art is a game.
- Octavio Paz

2. If a work of art is rich and vital and complete, those who have artistic instincts will see its beauty, and those to whom ethics appeal more strongly than aesthetics will see its moral lesson. It will fill the cowardly with terror, and the unclean will see in it their own shame.
- Oscar Wilde

3. Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.
- Paul Rand
