"As pessoas recorrem então ao vocabulário da patologia ou falam, sussurrando, do ‘mistério criador’. Mas o que poderá criar o indivíduo que porventura não seja poeta? Por causa deste equívoco muitas pessoas, nos tempos modernos, se intitularam ‘artistas’ por sua própria conta e risco. Como se a ‘arte’ nada tivesse a ver com a ‘capacidade’. ‘Ars totum requirit hominem’ [A arte requer o homem inteiro]. Talvez quando não tenhamos mais nada a criar, nos criemos a nós mesmos."

- C. G. Jung, prefácio à obra de D. T. Suzuki, “A Grande Libertação”.

“I have often, as an exercise and as a sustenance, painted before an object down to the smallest accidents of its visual appearance. But the day left me sad and with an unsatiated thirst. The next day I let the other source run, that of imagination through the recollection of the forms and I was then reassured and appeased.” —Odilon Redon
