As for me, I'm just passin' through this planet.
You can't smear acrylics, you know, it dries too fast.
I had a call to the University of Miami where I'd run a revival in 1950.
Well, as far as I'm concerned, I'm not here to live a normal life. I'm sent here on a mission.
Every time that we've ever fought, we fought to keep from bein' destroyed. We've never started a war.
My work begun to spread out. And calls to the universities begun to take me out of my garden, you know.
I came here as a man of visions. I was sent here as a man of visions, like a second Noah. I'm not a Noah but I'm here as a second Noah. I'm here as a red light is in the street.
When I'm makin' lectures to these universities, I tell 'em I like that little building because when I run short a audience, if I can get three people in there I've got a good crowd.
I never did buy things on credit, I always paid for 'em, because I can't see much difference in paying for something and just waiting a week and pay interest on it; that looks foolish to me.
But, when I had this feeling and started painting sacred art, as I had this feeling to do, then it come to me: my problem is I'll get a lot of criticism and another problem is my work's not good enough to sell.
