In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.
An artist is a dreamer consenting to dream of the actual world.
The mediator of the inexpressible is the work of art.
The beginning is the most important part of the work.
The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.
Very few people possess true artistic ability. It is therefore both unseemly and unproductive to irritate the situation by making an effort. If you have a burning, restless urge to write or paint, simply eat something sweet and the feeling will pass.
