Details: Delacroix at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

"What moves those of genius, what inspires their work is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough."

"The artist who aims at perfection in everything achieves it in nothing."

"If one considered life as a simple loan, one would perhaps be less exacting. We possess actually nothing; everything goes through us."

"A taste for simplicity cannot endure for long."
