"My age and health will never allow me to realize the dream of art I've been pursuing all my life."
"I must be more sensible and realize that at my age, illusions are hardly permitted and they will always destroy me."
"I ask you to pray for me, for once age has overtaken us, we find consolation only in religion."
"I have nothing to hide in art. The initial force alone can bring anyone to the end he must attain."
"When I judge art, I take my painting and put it next to a God made object like a tree or flower. If it clashes, it is not art."
