“I am not sick. I am broken. But I am happy as long as I can paint.”
Frida Kahlo, an epitome of endurance with a fine determination, feminist, political activist and a gifted artist, who made her weakness as her strength that inspired generations in past, inspiring today and will inspire in future too.
She is a self-portrait painter and self-proclaimed loner whose work was a slap in the major accident left her bed-ridden. As she stood by her art of painting again and support her spine as well.
Here are the quotes of Frida Kahlo who challenged the challenges of life, showing us the strength of women:
1. Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?
2. I paint flowers so they will not die.
3. They thought I was a surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.
4. Nothing is absolute. Everything changes, everything moves, everything revolves, everything flies and goes away.
5. Only one mountain can know the core of another mountain.
6. I am my own muse, I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better.
7. Pain, pleasure and death are no more than a process for existence. The revolutionary struggle in this process is a doorway open to intelligence.
8. At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.
9. I think that little by little I’ll be able to solve my problems and survive.
10. I drank because I wanted to drown my sorrows, but now the damned things have learned to swim.
Once the self-portrait painter and self-proclaimed loner said, “I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”
“I wish I could do whatever I liked behind the curtain of “madness”. Then: I’d arrange flowers, all day long, I’d paint; pain, love, and tenderness, I would laugh as much as I feel like at the stupidity of others, and they would all say: “Poor thing, she’s crazy!” (Above all I would laugh at my own stupidity.) I would build my world which while I lived, would be in agreement with all the worlds. The day, or the hour, or the minute that I lived would be mine and everyone else’s – my madness would not be an escape from “reality,” she added.
