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.

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!

Gemini, this vibrant piece perfectly encapsulates the quote about the unifying differences.

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.
