Garden Sculptures and Sculptor Quotes

Genius is eternal patience.
 A beautiful thing never gives so much pain as does failing to hear and see it.

Every beauty which is seen here by persons of perception resembles more than anything else that celestial source from which we all are come.

 My soul can find no staircase to Heaven unless it be through Earth's loveliness.

Death and love are the two wings that bear the good man to heaven.

  Auguste Rodin

   Art is contemplation. It is the pleasure of the mind which searches into nature and which there divines the spirit of which Nature herself is animated. 

  The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms, Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.

 There are unknown forces in nature; when we give ourselves wholly to her, without reserve, she lends them to us; she shows us these forms, which our watching eyes do not see, which our intelligence does not understand or suspect.
