Art must not be a superficial talent, but must begin further back in man. Art, not less eloquently than literature, teaches her children to venerate the single eye. Art rests on a kind of religious sense, on a 50 deep, steadfast earnestness; and on this account it unites so readily with religion. Art thou afraid of death, and dost thou wish to live for ever?

Live in the whole that remains when thou hast long been gone wenn du lange dahin bist. As all men have some access to primary truth, so all have some art or power of communication in the head, but only in the artist does it descend into the hand.

As good be out of the world as out of the 15 fashion. As good almost kill a man as kill a good book; who kills a man kills a reasonable creature, God's image; but he who destroys a good book kills reason itself. As he alone is a good father who at table serves 20 his children first, so is he alone a good citizen who, before all other outlays, discharges what he owes to the state.

A small sorrow distracts us, a great one makes 55 us collected.
