It is well with me only when I have a chisel in my hand.
Beauty is the purgation of superfluities.
There is no greater harm than that of time wasted.
Trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle.
Many believe - and I believe - that I have been designated for this work by God. In spite of my old age, I do not want to give it up; I work out of love for God and I put all my hope in Him.
The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.
