“The supreme question about a work of art is out of
how deep a life does it spring.
Paintings of Moreau are paintings of ideas.
The deepest poetry of Shelley, the words of Hamlet bring our mind
into contact with the eternal wisdom; Plato’s world of ideas.
All the rest is the speculation of schoolboys for schoolboys.”
“The movements which work revolutions in the world are born out of
the dreams and visions in a peasant’s heart on the hillside.”
“The voices blend and fuse in clouded silence: silence that is infinite of space:
and swiftly, silently the sound is wafted over regions of cycles of
cycles of generations that have lived.”
“Thought is the thought of thought.”
“To learn one must be humble. But life is the great teacher.“
