8 of Frida Kahlo's Most Memorable Quotes

Edited By: Jake Ramirez

 Frida Kahlo de Rivera (1907-1954) was a Mexican surrealist painter who is best remembered for her self-portraits. When she was 18, she suffered serious injuries when the bus she was riding in collided with a trolley car. In addition to breaking multiple bones, she suffered bouts of extreme pain for the rest of her life, and was unable to bear children as a result of it. When the pain came, she sometimes ended up bedridden for months on end, and it was this solitude that inspired her best work.

 

As if suffering life-threatening injuries wasn't enough, Kahlo was also known for her volatile marriage to Mexican artist Diego Rivera. It goes without saying that this lady did not have an easy life, fraught with fragile health and tumultuous personal relationships. Despite it all, her inner beauty always shone through, as you will see through these beautiful inspirational quotes about love and life that she left the world to ponder over:

Frida Kahlo - I used to think I was the strangest person in the world, but then I thought there are so many people in the world. There must be someone like me...
Frida Kahlo - Don't build a wall around your own suffering - it may devour you from the inside.

 

Frida Kahlo - I love you more than my own skin, and even though you don't love me the same way, you love me anyways, don't you?
 
Frida Kahlo - Feet, what do I need you for, when I have wings to fly?
Frida Kahlo - I'd like to give you everything you never had, but not even then would you know how beautiful it is to love you.
 
Frida Kahlo - I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you.
Frida Kahlo - I feel that we have been together since our origin, that we are part of the same substance, of the same waves, that we share the same direction.
Frida Kahlo - Remember that every tick tock is a second of life that goes by and doesn't repeat itself. There is in it so much intensity, so much interest, that there is only the problem of how to live it. To each one to resolve their own as best as they can.
