Personal Quote:

Nothing is a masterpiece - a real masterpiece - till it's about two hundred years old. A picture is like a tree or a church: you've got to let it grow into a masterpiece. Same with a poem or a new religion. They begin as a lot of funny words. Nobody knows whether they're all nonsense or a gift from heaven. See more »
