I dream my painting and I paint my dream.
To suffer without complaint is the only lesson we have to learn in this life

Don't lose heart if it's very difficult at times, everything will come out all right and nobody can in the beginning do as he wishes.
Love is eternal -- the aspect may change, but not the essence. There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning. The lamp was there and was a good lamp, but now it is shedding light too, and that is its real function. And love makes one calmer about many things, and that way, one is more fit for one's work.
