    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    If it is the mark of the artist to love art before everything, to renounce everything for its sake, to think all the sweet human things of life well lost if only he may attain something, do some good, great work—then I was never an artist.
    Ellen Terry (1847–1928)
