Bringing Europe Home

Quotes from the Masters: Picasso

I’m creating a new category of posts that I am calling, “Quotes from the Masters.”  Because of my proximity to Augusta, Georgia, I must add the disclaimer that it’s not about golf.

What it IS about is gleaning the best quotes I can find from European masters of literature, philosophy, theology, music, and the visual, performing, and culinary arts.

It will be up to you to “Bring It Home.” 😉

Since I’ve been having so much fun with the blogging challenges, I’m offering this up as a blogging challenge as well, though it will be a soft challenge.  Feel free to use the quote as an inspiration for your own post this week and interpret it as you like, using a photograph, a story, a reflection, a poem, a flower, a song, a recipe, a cup of tea –whatever!  Please title this one, “Quotes from the Masters: Picasso” and please add the link to this page on your post.  I’d be delighted to see a link to your post on the comments section of this page, too.

I’ll plan to post a new quote each Saturday–but if I don’t, either I’m taking a break or my server is down.  In other words, don’t set your clock by me!

Here you are, your inspiration for today:

“Everything you can imagine is real.”  Pablo Picasso

  3. That is a superb shot of the Eiffel tower!

    • I’m glad you like it, Madhu! I’d love for you to join the challenge! 🙂

  4. Robin what a wonderful idea! I can’t wait to see what everyone submits; it’s a great quote! And thankfully has nothing to do with golf 😉

    • Thanks, Kerry. I do like that quote. I’m glad you like the idea (I’d love to see what you submit, too! 😉 )

  5. Ooooh, I like this challenge. And I love the photo–I haven’t seen many images of the Eiffel Tower from that angle at night. I’ll have to see what quotes I can come find.

    • I am so cheered to know that Madame Weebles approves. 😉

  6. That’s a great start point Robin.

    • Thanks, Jo!
      I hope you’ll participate–I know that you have so much fine fodder for the imagination! 🙂

    ALSO: “My mother said to me, If you become a soldier, you’ll be a a General; If you become a monk, you’ll wind up as the Pope; Instead,I became a painter, and wound up as Picasso. ” Pablo Picasso (gorgeous photo, great idea)

    • Great quote, Babe! Thanks for sharing. (Guess he had no issues with low self-esteem, did he? 😉 )

  10. I love this picture, it is perfect!!


    • Thank you, Cynthia. I thought it was rather apropos, myself. 🙂

  11. Wow, look at all those lights! I like your quote and photo, a very good match.

    • Thank you, Lorna! I thought the building of the Eiffel Tower, the harnessing of electricity would work well to illustrate the realization of things imagined. 🙂

  12. ” That Tour ” appears to be a golden way. Like it!

    • It does look golden! Thank you for that lovely comment. 🙂

  13. This brings back memories…. Glad you posted this Robin! I can now reminisce all day!
