“But I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.”

“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”

“I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people”

“Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence”

“I am still far from being what I want to be, but with God’s help I shall succeed.”

“I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.”

“The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore”

“An artist needn’t be a clergyman or a churchwarden, but he certainly must have a warm heart for his fellow men.

“You can’t be at the pole and the equator at the same time. You must choose your own line, as I hope to do, and it will probably be colour.”

“I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say ‘he feels deeply, he feels tenderly.'”

“It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.”
