A painter should not paint what he sees, but what will be seen.
Paul Valery (1871 - 1945)

At times I think and at times I am.
Our judgements judge us, and nothing reveals us, exposes our weaknesses, more ingeniously than the attitude of pronouncing upon our fellows.
In the physical world, one cannot increase the size or quantity of anything without changing its quality. Similar figures exist only in pure geometry.
The future isn't what it used to be.
The trouble with our times is that the future is not what it used to be.
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
The painter should not paint what he sees, but what will be seen.

An artist never really finishes his work, he merely abandons it.
