"Some students possess the school they work in. Others are possessed by the school...All education must be self-education. The man who goes in to school to educate himself and not be educated will get somewhere...The real study of an art student is generally missed in the pursuit of a copying technique."

"Don't take me as an authority. I am simply expressing a very personal point of view. Nothing final about it. You have to settle all these matters for yourself."
