Quote Left A man at work, making something which he feels will exist because he is working at it and wills it, is exercising the energies of his mind and soul as well as of his body. Memory and imagination help him as he works. Not only his own thoughts, but the thoughts of the men of past ages guide his hands; and, as part of the human race, he creates. If we work thus we shall be men, and our days will be happy and eventful. Quote Right
Quote Left I love art, and I love history, but it is living art and living history that I love. It is in the interest of living art and living history that I oppose so-called restoration.

Quote Left If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful. Quote Right

Quote Left You can always draw as well as you know how to. I flatter myself that I feel more than I express on canvas; but I know that is not so. Quote Right
