These were my favorite quotes from the painter…which ones are your favorites from the ones below?
1- A good picture is equivalent to a good deed.
2- Conscience is a man’s compass.
3- Do not quench your inspiration and your imagination; do not become the slave of your model.
4- Even the knowledge of my own fallibility cannot keep me from making mistakes. Only when I fall do I get up again.
5- Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
6- I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.
7- I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process.
8- If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot paint,” then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
9- It is better to be high-spirited even though one makes more mistakes, than to be narrow-minded and all too prudent.
10- One must work and dare if one really wants to live.
11- What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
