Suggestions needed for wall quote

Over the summer, our amazing custodial staff painted a wall in my art room a very funky color (per my request) so it's like my "accent wall".  I am going to get a large custom-made wall decal for above the sink, and I wanted to do a very inspiring quote about art.  Does anyone have any suggestions for really impactful quotes/statements?  It's middle school.  Also, I don't want anything really cliche'...like I don't want to use the word "creativity".  :)  Thanks in advance for any suggestions! See More
