But the ingenious machinery contrived by the Gods for reducing human possibilities of amelioration to a minimum which arranges that wisdom to do shall come pari passu with the departure of zest for doing stood in the way of all that.
Painting is something that takes place among the colors, and ... one has to leave them alone completely, so that they can settle the matter among themselves. Their intercourse: this is the whole of painting. Whoever meddles, arranges, injects his human deliberation, his wit, his advocacy, his intellectual agility in any way, is already disturbing and clouding their activity.Rainer Maria Rilke
