The best artist has that thought alone Which is contained within the marble shell; The sculptor's hand can only break the spell To free the figures slumbering in the stone.


I have never felt salvation in nature. I love cities above all.


If in my youth I had realized that the sustaining splendour of beauty of with which I was in love would one day flood back into my heart, there to ignite a flame that would torture me without end, how gladly would I have put out the light in my eyes.


Death and love are the two wings that bear the good man to heaven.


Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.


There is no greater harm than that of time wasted.


I am still learning.


My soul can find no staircase to Heaven unless it be through Earth's loveliness.


The more the marbles wastes, the more the statue grows.


The best of artists has no conception that the marble alone does not contain within itself.


The promises of this world are, for the most part, vain phantoms; and to confide in one's self, and become something of worth and value is the best and safest course.


Genius is eternal patience.


If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful at all.


The marble not yet carved can hold the form of every thought the greatest artist has.


I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.


A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.


I live and love in God's peculiar light.


The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.


Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.


The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.
