    Mastery is proven only in limitation,
    and law alone can give us freedom.

    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    Artists have a double relationship towards nature: they are her master and her slave at the same time. They are her slave in so far as they must work with means of this world so as to be understood; her master in so far as they subject these means to their higher goals and make them subservient to them.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    If the artist is not also a craftsman, the artist is nothing, but calamity: most of our artists are nothing but craftsmen.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
