Words and pictures

If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Moving, be like water. Still, be like a mirror. Respond like an echo.

Turn into a doll made of wood: it has no ego, it thinks nothing,

it is not grasping or stick. Let the body and limbs work themselves out

in accordance with the discipline they have undergone.

Art is never decoration, embellishment;  instead, it is work

of enlightenment. Art, in other words,

is a technique for acquiring liberty.

Art is the way to the absolute and to the essence of human life.

The aim of art is not the one-sided promotion of spirit,

soul and senses, but the opening of all human capacities –

thought, feeling, will – to the life rhythm of the world of nature.
