The sculptor does not work for the anatomist, but for the common observer of life and nature.
John Ruskin, True and Beautiful. Sculpture

Sculpture is more than painting. It is greater to raise the dead to life than to create phantoms that seem to live.
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Michael Angelo a dramatic poem

Sculpture is more divine, and more like Nature, That fashions all her works in high relief, And that is sculpture.
This vast ball, the Earth, Was moulded out of clay, and baked in fire; Men, women, and all animals that breathe
Are statues, and not paintings. Even the plants, The flowers, the fruits, the grasses, were first sculptured,
And coloured later. Painting is a lie, A shadow merely.
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Michael Angelo a dramatic poem

It is a beautiful thing to model a statue and give it life; to mould an intelligence and instill truth therein is still more beautiful.
Victor Hugo, Ninety-Three

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set it free.
— Michelangelo

My love life is terrible. The last time I was inside a woman was when I visited the Statue of Liberty.
Woody Allen, Crimes and Misdemeanors
