-The secret of life is to have a task, something you devote your entire life to, something you bring everything to, every minute of the day for the rest of your life. And the most important thing is, it must be something you cannot possibly do.  
-There's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it.
-Art is a continuous activity with no separation between past and present.
-Art is not to do with the practical side of making a living. It's to live a fuller human life.
-To be an artist is to believe in life.
                                      Henry Moore
