Michael Angelo Quotes

Italian painter
(1475 - 1564)

Death and love are the two wings that bear the good man to heaven.

Heaven-born, the soul a heavenward course must hold; beyond the world she soars; the wise man, I affirm, can find no rest in that which perishes, nor will he lend his heart to aught that doth on time depend.

The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.

Trifles make perfection, but perfection itself is no trifle.
