Famous mosaic quotes that will make your day
(3 min read) As an avid reader, as well as a music and movie buff, I pride myself on my fabulous collection of a variety of famous and not so famous quotes. From the well-known Eastwood’s quiet and ominous “Go ahead, make my day”, to less-known Day-Lewis’ annoyed “I drink your milkshake!”. Written and spoken art brought us some terrific quotes we use and abuse on a daily basis, I myself am guilty of mumbling “Chewie, we’re home” whenever I walk through my front door, as well as making everyone at work cringe with “Elementary, my dear Watson” all the time.
Some quotes are actually punching lines, some are inspirational, some are just plain funny, and others are wise and contemplative. Needless to say, topics are colorful too, and you can find quotes on basically anything from pineapples to world politics. Being one of the oldest art forms in the world, mosaic art also has its own array of famous quotes, both as a metaphor and as an art piece. Here are some of the most memorable mosaic quotes and some of the most memorable mosaic masterpieces as well. Enjoy!
“…Last night was a rapture in the mosaic sky. Dropping shards of love, dropping shards of love…” by Patti Smith.
“Mosaic” was one of the best songs on Smith’s 2012 album called “Banga”. If you weren’t sure what mosaics are made of, Smith and Daugherty will provide you with an answer — love.
“We are mosaics. Pieces of light, love history, stars- glued together with magic and music and words.” By Anita Krizzan, Poet

“We become not a melting pot, but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.” By Jimmy Carter, Politician
Considering the fact that one of the greatest achievements of Jimmy Carter’s presidency was the making of the Department of Education, it is no wonder that the 39th American president has a way with words. He used the term “mosaic” to describe the versatility of the American people and he couldn’t have picked a better word for it.
“So you were never a saint. And I loved in shades of wrong. We learn to live with the pain. Mosaic broken hearts. But this love is brave and wild.” By Taylor Swift, Singer-songwriter.
It’s Tay-Tay you guys! Need I say more? Mosaic is EVERYWHERE. As it should be.
“The earth is a mosaic, and most fail to notice the gossamer tesserae floating down from the realm of the mind that form its images of beauty and horror.” By Lawren Leo, Author.
This well-known quote by Lawren Leo is the perfect piece of wisdom for the end. However, I wouldn’t be your favorite blogger if I didn’t have one honorable mention to top it all off. Here are just a couple of verses from Ricky Skaggs’ song “mosaic”:
“Tell me who it is you see. A little piece of colored stone. And placed here on its own. To me a mystery.” by Lawren Leo.
