“Art begins with resistance—at the point where resistance is overcome. No human masterpiece has ever been created without great labor.”
― André Gide, French, author, writer, Nobel Prize
Gide is a French author and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1947. In the 1920s, Gide became an inspiration for writers such as Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre. His self-exploratory texts reflect his search of how to be fully oneself … without at the same time betraying one’s values.
Marvelous words, so true and at the same time very inspiring. I agree – nothing in this world that is of high value and allows it’s author to enter the highly desired doors of immortality – has been created without great labor. And yes, the resistance – the ability to say, ‘yes, you will do it – you can do it- even if the rest of the world will try to stop you or drag you down’. Creating a masterpiece is like being madly in love and finally ‘making it happen’ – you turn your world upside down, you lose your senses, you take all the risks – but it is all worthwhile. Thank you dear Friend for this delightful post.
