Painting is a faith, and it imposes the duty to disregard public opinion.

Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter's soul.

As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed.

Conscience is a man's compass.

I wish they would only take me as I am.

For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.

I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
