Men can do all things if they will.
We must always take from nature what we paint and always choose the most beautiful things.
Beauty: the adjustment of all parts proportionately so that one cannot add or subtract or change without impairing the harmony of the whole.
A man can do all things if he but wills them.
When I investigate and when I discover that the forces of the heavens and the planets are within ourselves, then truly I seem to be living among the gods.
