Move things when they don’t

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.

Genius is eternal patience.

Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.

Trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle.

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

Beauty is the purgation of superfluities.

Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.

A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.

The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.

It is well with me only when I have a chisel in my hand.
