    • A primitive artist is an amateur whose work sells.
    • A strange thing is memory, and hope; one looks backward, and the other forward; one is of today, the other of tomorrow. Memory is history recorded in our brain, memory is a painter, it paints pictures of the past and of the day.
    • Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.
