#1. Hours of preparation for something that is excecuted, with extreme precision, in a few minutes. Just as with a judo throw. - Author: Yves Klein
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Klein
#2. That day in Chartres they had passed through town and watched women kneeling at the edge of the water, pounding clothes against a flat, wooden board. Yves had watched them for a long time. They had wandered up and down the old crooked streets, in the hot sun; Eric remembered a lizard darting across a wall; and everywhere the cathedral pursued them. It is impossible to be in that town and not be in the shadow of those great towers; impossible to find oneself on those plains and not be troubled by that cruel and elegant, dogmatic and pagan presence. The town was full of tourists, with their cameras, their three-quarter coats, bright flowered dresses and shirts, their children, college insignia, Panama hats, sharp, nasal cries, and automobiles crawling like monstrous gleaming bugs over the laming, cobblestoned streets. Tourist buses, from Holland, from Denmark, from Germany, stood in the square before the cathedral. Tow-haired boys and girls, earnest, carrying knapsacks, wearing khaki-colored shorts, with heavy buttocks and thighs, wandered dully through the town. American soldiers, some in uniform, some in civilian clothes, leaned over bridges, entered bistros in strident, uneasy, smiling packs, circled displays of colored post cards, and picked up meretricious mementos, of a sacred character. All of the beauty of the town, all the energy of the plains, and all the power and dignity of the people seemed to have been sucked out of them by the cathedral. It was as though the cath - Author: James Baldwin
Lhomme Yves quotes by James Baldwin
#3. I am always looking for ways to move technology away from being over-featured. Moving to Silicon Valley in the mid-1990s meant I grew up as a designer in an environment where technology is a tool and not a means to an end. I believe that design should be driven by ideas, not style. - Author: Yves Behar
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Behar
#4. Above all, he encourages her to paint, nodding with approval at even her most unusual experiments with color, light, rough brushwork [...]. She explains to him that she believes painting should reflect nature and life [...]. He nods, although he adds cautiously that he wouldn't want her to know too much about life - nature is a fine subject, but life is grimmer than she can understand. He thinks it is good for her to have something satisfying to do at home; he loves art himself; he sees her gift and wants her to be happy. He knows the charming Morisots. He has met the Manets, and always remarks that they are a good family, despite Édouard's reputation and his immoral experiments (he paints loose women), which make him perhaps too modern - a shame, given his obvious talent.

In fact, Yves takes her to many galleries. They attend the Salon every year, with nearly a million other people, and listen to the gossip about favorite canvases and those critics disdain. Occasionally they stroll in the museums in the Louvre, where she sees art students copying paintings and sculpture, even an unchaperoned woman here and there (surely Americans). She can't quite bring herself to admire nudes in his presence, certainly not the heroic males; she knows she will never paint from a nude model herself. Her own formal training was in the private studios of an academican, copying from plaster casts with her mother present, before she married. - Author: Elizabeth Kostova
Lhomme Yves quotes by Elizabeth Kostova
#5. I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence. - Author: Yves Saint-Laurent
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Saint-Laurent
#6. I swam across the rocks and compared myself favorably with the sars. To swim fishlike, horizontally, was the logical method in a medium eight hundred times denser than air. To halt and hang attached to nothing, no lines or air pipe to the surface, was a dream. At night I had often had visions of flying by extending my arms as wings. Now I flew without wings. (Since that first aqualung flight, I have never had a dream of flying.) - Author: Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Lhomme Yves quotes by Jacques-Yves Cousteau
#7. I think every business, really, has a unique reason for being, unique assets, unique attributes, a unique history. And that can be turned into a very attractive design story, essentially, that consumers can relate to. - Author: Yves Behar
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Behar
#8. Without ethics, everything happens as if we were all five billion passengers on a big machinery and nobody is driving the machinery. And it's going faster and faster, but we don't know where. - Author: Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Lhomme Yves quotes by Jacques-Yves Cousteau
#9. I imagine a future with no waste; material innovations have already become exponentially more vast, and I do think the future needs to be cradle to cradle. If designed properly, one product could be used for many years before needing to be recycled, or its components reused. - Author: Yves Behar
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Behar
#10. Blue Jeans? They should be worn by farm girls milking cows! - Author: Yves Saint-Laurent
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Saint-Laurent
#11. I had proof that I had five senses, that I knew how to get myself to function! And then I lost my childhood ... - Author: Yves Klein
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Klein
#12. What got me really excited about Tylko is the fact that it bridges the gap between tradition and technology. It expands the designer's ability to create a language, to create ideas, to create a set of proportions, a set of details, and to apply those across a really wide range of applications. - Author: Yves Behar
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Behar
#13. Qui donc t'a donne la mission s'annoncer au peuple que la divinite n'existe pas? Quel avantage trouves-tu a persuader a l'homme qu'une force aveugle preside a ses destinees et frappe au hasard le crime et la vertu? (Who then invested you with the mission to announce to the people that there is no God? What advantage find you in persuading man that nothing but blind force presides over his destinies, and strikes haphazard both crime and virtue?) - ROBESPIERRE, "DISCOURS," MAI 7, 1794. - Author: Edward Bulwer-Lytton
Lhomme Yves quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton

#15. My name will be written in fiery letters on the Champs Elysees. - Author: Yves Saint-Laurent
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Saint-Laurent
#16. How dangerous are those sea animals with bad reputations? A few actually kill. A few maim. Some are poisonous when eaten by man. Most sting, stab,or poison and cause mild to severe discomfort to man. Yet man is one of the larger beings that sea creatures encounter, and these poisons usually can't kill him. - Author: Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Lhomme Yves quotes by Jacques-Yves Cousteau
#17. Fashion comes and goes, but style is eternal. - Author: Yves Saint-Laurent
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Saint-Laurent
#18. Blue has no dimensions, it is beyond dimensions, whereas the other colours are not ... All colours arouse specific associative ideas, psychologically material or tangible, while blue suggests at most the sea and sky, and they, after all, are in actual, visible nature what is most abstract. - Author: Yves Klein
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Klein
#19. Fashions pass quickly, and nothing is more pathetic than those puppets of fashion outrageously made up one day, pale the next, pleated or ironed stiff, libertine or ascetic. Playing with fashion is an art. The first rule is don't burn your wings. - Author: Yves Saint-Laurent
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Saint-Laurent

Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Klein
#27. It [speaking with words that bring about harmony] consists of speaking of what is good about people, instead of what is wrong with them. For some people this is an almost impossible exercise, for they have become totally habituated to speaking critically. We all seem to have a special talent for finding critical things to say about the world, about others, and about ourselves! (117) - Author: Jean-Yves Leloup
Lhomme Yves quotes by Jean-Yves Leloup
#28. Unknowing, let us sleep. Chest against chest,
Our breathing mingled, hand in hand without dreams. - Author: Yves Bonnefoy
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Bonnefoy
#29. To be grounded in an attitude of compassion is to be capable of receiving and welcoming the suffering, which the other is giving us. This does not mean that we suffer for them, but that we offer them possibility of going beyond the separate self in which suffering is harbored. (59) - Author: Jean-Yves Leloup
Lhomme Yves quotes by Jean-Yves Leloup

Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Klein

Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Rossy
#36. I couldn't love a woman who inspired me to be totally disinterested. If I fell in love with a woman for an artistic reason, or from the point of view of my work, I think it would rob her of something. - Author: Yves Saint-Laurent
Lhomme Yves quotes by Yves Saint-Laurent
#37. It's terrible to have to say this. World population must be stabilized and to do that we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. This is so horrible to contemplate that we shouldn't even say it. But the general situation in which we are involved is lamentable. - Author: Jacques-Yves Cousteau
