Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure - that of being Salvador Dali.
Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.
Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.
Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.i.
The first man to compare the cheeks of a young woman to a rose was obviously a poet; the first to repeat it was possibly an idiot.
Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.

Púbol, in the comarca of Baix Empordà, Girona Catalonia (Salvador Dali’s home)
The Castle of Púbol, is located in Púbol, in the comarca of Baix Empordà, Girona, Catalonia. It was the home to surrealist painter Salvador Dalí and his wife Gala (but not at the same time). Gala is buried at the castle. In 1968, Dalí bought Gala her own separate castle in Púbol, Girona, where she would spend time every summer from 1971-1980. He also agreed not to visit there without getting advance permission from her in writing. After Gala’s death in 1982, Dalí moved into the Castle for the first time. In 1984, a fire broke out in his bedroom under unclear circumstances. It was possibly a suicide attempt by Dalí, or possibly simple negligence by his staff. Dalí was rescued by friend and collaborator Robert Descharnes and returned to Figueres, where a group of his friends, patrons, and fellow artists saw to it that he was comfortable living in his Theater-Museum for his final years.
