For The Love Of Wisdom – Henri Matisse – Courage

Henri Matisse (December 31, 1869 – November 03, 1954)

The effort to see a thing without distortion takes something very much like courage and this courage is essential to the artist who has to look at everything as though he saw it for the first time: he has to look at life as he did when he was a child. If he loses that faculty, he cannot express himself in an original, that is, a personal way.
