"There is nothing real outside of us, there is nothing real except the coincidence of a feeling and an individual mental direction. We are not likely to doubt the existence of the objects that impress our senses. But we can not be certain about the images they make appear in our mind.

So we are surprised when well-meaning critics explain the remarkable difference between the shapes attributed to nature and those of contemporary painting through the will to represent things not as they appear but as they are. How are they?" - [Albert Gleizes]



"The desired new order implicit in the stir of indeterminate activity cannot be seized in the abstract: it must crystallize in terms of some medium in which the worker is adept. Without craft it will escape . . . . All finished productions have the simplicity of order, which reveals itself rather than its origins . . . . Even the most energetic and original mind, in order to reorganize or extend human insight in any valuable way, must have attained more than ordinary mastery of the field in which it is to act, a strong sense of what needs to be done, and skill in the appropriate means of expression. It seems certain that no significant expansion of insight can be produced otherwise, whether the activity is thought of as work or not . . . .The restlessness of the inventor is unending because he is an adept in realization, he has an inordinate appetite for discovery and the ability to satisfy it . . . . Although the work that tests, refines, and consolidates what is attained in moments of inspiration is not likely to be, in the arts at least, all conscious calculation, it is largely so. Its object both in art and in intellectual invention, is to make sure that the product is really serviceable . . . . We must expect to live the orderly ways we have invented continually conscious of the imminence of change." - [Brewster Ghiselin]
