“When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college — that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared at me, incredulous, and said, “You mean they forget?””

“Si votre vie quotidienne vous paraît pauvre, ne l’accusez pas ; accusez-vous plutôt, dites-vous que vous n’êtes pas assez poète pour en convoquer les richesses.
Pour celui qui crée, il n’y a pas, en effet, de pauvreté ni de lieu indigent, indifférent.”
