useful reminders

"But genius is nothing more nor less than childhood recovered at will - a childhood now equipped for self expression, with manhood's capacities and a power of analysis which enables it to order the mass of raw material which it has involuntarily accumulated."
Charles Baudelaire

"I do not want to see how skillful you are - I am not interested in your skill. What do you get out of nature?... What is life to you? What reasons and what principles have you found? What are your deductions? What projections have you made? What excitement, what pleasure do you get out of it? Your skill is the thing of least interest to me..."
Robert Henri
