    It is an easy matter for an artist to fail. It is an easier matter for an artist to succeed. It is simply a matter of creating and presenting before an audience the contents of one’s soul. To strive beyond this is to weigh one’s worth upon a set of untrue scales opposite a pennyweight of gold. It is to compete with the memory of the dead.

    It is easy to be an artist when the work goes well. It is another matter when the work proves difficult. The true artist disregards such distinctions. The work is as the rise of the sun, the phase of the moon, the tide of the sea.
