The work of art is above all a process of creation, it is never experienced as a mere product.
To emphasize only the beautiful seems to me to be like a mathematical system that only concerns itself with positive numbers.
A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.
Everything passes, and what remains of former times, what remains of life, is the spiritual. In everything we do, the claim of the Absolute is unchanging.
Beauty is as relative as light and dark. Thus, there exists no beautiful woman, none at all, because you are never certain that a still far more beautiful woman will not appear and completely shame the supposed beauty of the first.
The painter should not paint what he sees, but what will be seen.
