George Sand   Category:

One approaches the journey's end. But the end is a goal, not a catastrophe.

The artist vocation is to send light into the human heart.
George Sand   Category:

The beauty that addresses itself to the eyes is only the spell of the moment; the eye of the body is not always that of the soul.
