Frida Kahlo is known as much for her paintings as she is for her indomitable spirit. At a time when women were being severely oppressed all around the world, Frida stood out an an independent woman with a mind of her own, a true feminist in her own right. Subjected to life’s hardships, she experienced much pain and suffering, yet, she never gave up on the things or people she loved. Though she is no more, she still serves as an inspiration to women around the world and lives on through her perceptive and moving paintings. Here are some of her most insightful sayings.
“Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is the strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light.”
“I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to better.”
“I paint flowers so they will not die.”
A surrealistic painting of Kahlo
“Nothing is absolute. Everything changes, everything moves, everything revolves, everything flies and goes away.”
“I want to be inside your darkest everything.”
Another of her paintings titled ‘Roots.’
