„I have found out that though the ways in which I can make myself useful are few, yet the work open to me is endless.“

—  Helen Keller, buch Optimism

Optimism (1903)
Kontext: I, too, can work, and because I love to labor with my head and my hands, I am an optimist in spite of all. I used to think I should be thwarted in my desire to do something useful. But I have found out that though the ways in which I can make myself useful are few, yet the work open to me is endless.

„it was the period I think of as the age of the pillow... What I wanted to bring out - is that which cannot be measured - I wanted to bring out the tired movement in the eyelids - the lips must look as though they are whispering - she must look as though she is breathing - I want life - what is alive.“

—  Edvard Munch Norwegian painter and printmaker 1863 - 1944
