''The plastic virtues: purity, unity, and truth, keep nature in subjection.''
''I love men, not for what unites them, but for what divides them, and I want to know most of all what gnaws at their hearts.''
''To insist on purity is to baptize instinct, to humanize art, and to deify personality.''
''A structure becomes architectural, and not sculptural, when its elements no longer have their justification in nature.''
''Artists are, above all, men who want to become inhuman.''
''It's raining my soul, it's raining, but it's raining dead eyes.''
