Quotes from Michael Leunig.
In order to be truthful we must do more than speak the truth. We must also hear truth, receive truth, search for truth. – Michael Leunig
The cartoonist’s task is not so much to be balanced as to give balance, particularly in situations of disproportionate power relationships such as we see in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. – Michael Leunig
If European symbols and traditions have grown tired, perfunctory and oppressively banal in Australia, or been drained of spirit and meaning by the dreary dictates of materialism and secularity, then the raw spirit truth of our native land is alive and radiant by comparison. For joy and meaning we might well turn to our natural country and witness miracles of vitality and new life, of inspiration and profound beauty; all in some humble, quiet and improbable place. – Michael Leunig
There was all this loneliness in my cartoons and people would say, “Gee, these characters are so lonely, disconnected, depressed.” And I’d say, ‘Yeah well, that’s not me. I’m just interested in that because I think it makes a funny drawing.’ But later I understood it was me in many respects; my hand was doing it ahead of the head’s understanding. – Michael Leunig
