There are unknown forces in nature when we give ourselves wholly to her, without reserve, she lends them to us she shows us these forms, which our watching eyes do not see, which our intelligence does not understand or suspect.

Nature is truth. Art is the highest truth.

The mission of art is not to copy nature, but to express it!

Art is the transition from nature to education, and from education to nature.
