- Nothing is important save the spiritual state that enables one to subjectify one's thoughts to a sensation and to think only of the sensation, all the while searching to express it.
- To say that a thing is beautiful is simply an act of faith, not a measurement on some kind of scale.
- We perceive nature through the senses, which give us images of forms of colour, sounds etc. A form which exists only in relation to another form on its own, it does not exist.
- Conceive of a picture really as a series of harmonies.
