„I always thought I wanted to play professionally, and I always knew that to do that I'd have to make a lot of sacrifices. I made sacrifices by leaving Argentina, leaving my family to start a new life. I changed my friends, my people. Everything. But everything I did, I did for football, to achieve my dream.“

„.. I therefore got around to painting [in Amsterdam, 1883] and that's why teaching started to become a burden for me. So then it HAD to happen now: Make or break! And I asked my dismissal at the school, threw away my 2500 florin a year, sacrificed everything, although I never made any painting yet, and certainly sold nothing at all. And my acquaintances, my family, they found me reckless and shamefully frivolous with my sacrifice to art, for which they did not felt any sympathy or understand anything of it after all.“

—  Suze Robertson Dutch painter 1855 - 1922

(version in original Dutch / origineel citaat van Suze Robertson:) ..ik kwam zodoende meer aan 't schilderen [inmiddels in Amsterdam, 1883], waardoor 't lesgeven me begon te bezwaren. Dus dan MOEST het ook maar: erop of eronder! En ik vroeg mijn ontslag aan de school, gooide mijn f 2500,- per jaar weg, offerde àlles op, hoewel ik nog nooit 'n schilderij gemaakt, laat staan iets verkocht had. En m'n kennissen, m'n familie, ze vonden me roekeloos en schandelijk lichtzinnig met mijn offer aan de kunst, waarvoor ze immers niets voelden of van begrepen..
