Quotes by James Gurney  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Survival of all or none.
One raindrop raises the sea.
Weapons are enemies even to their owners.

Give more, take less.
Others first, self last.
Observe, listen, and learn.
Do one thing at a time.

Sing every day.
Exercise imagination.
Eat to live, don't live to eat.”
James Gurney, Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time

“There is no line between fine art and illustration; there is no high or low art; there is only art, and it comes in many forms.” (p. 12)”
James Gurney, Imaginative Realism: How to Paint What Doesn't Exist

“A moment well spent is the best accomplishment. Yesterday is a phantom and tomorrow a mirage. The only day worth living is this one. If we can do that wekl, the yesterdays and tomorrows take care of themselves”
James Gurney, Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara
