The source of genius is imagination alone, the refinement of the senses that sees what others do not see, or sees them differently.
What makes men of genius, or rather, what they make, is not new ideas, it is that idea - possessing them - that what has been said has still not been said enough.
Do all the work you can; that is the whole philosophy of the good way of life.
I live in company with a body, a silent companion, exacting and eternal.
Artists who seek perfection in everything are those who cannot attain it in anything.
