Over 100 years ago, Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón was born in Mexico. For many she was simply Frida. Our Frida. As is the fate of most visionaries, she wasn’t as appreciated during her time on this earth as she was once she left it at the age 47. Her work, style, bravado, and wit, still continues to inspire around the world.
We’ve gathered 20 of our favorite Frida quotes to celebrate her birthday; because her words remain as striking as her paintings.
1. I was born a bitch. I was born a painter.
2. Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?
3. I paint flowers so they will not die.
