"A hill or tree cannot make a good painting just because it is a hill or a tree. It is lines and colours put together so that they say something."

β€œTo find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring β€” these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”- John Burroughs

"Fruits... like having their portrait painted. They seem to sit there and ask your forgiveness for fading. Their thought is given off with their perfumes. They come with all their scents, they speak of the fields they have left, the rain which has nourished them, the daybreaks they have seen." - Paul Cezanne
