Exactitude is not truth.
A taste for simplicity cannot endure for long.
Nature is a dictionary; one draws words from it.
Talent does whatever it wants to do. Genius does only what it can.
The artist who aims at perfection in everything achieves it in nothing.
I live in company with a body, a silent companion, exacting and eternal.
Do all the work you can; that is the whole philosophy of the good way of life.
Do not be troubled for a language, cultivate your soul and she will show herself.
Artists who seek perfection in everything are those who cannot attain it in anything.
The source of genius is imagination alone, the refinement of the senses that sees what others do not see, or sees them differently.
