“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.”

“The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.”

“If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”

“What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?”

“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.”
