Wisdom on Wednesdays—To receive from God gratefully

My philosophy may be summed up thus:
First, to receive from God gratefully everything possible that I can get.
Second, to give back to God through my neighbor everything which I can give.
To give gifts to my neighbor I must use art, because a gift must be made—
hence I must be an artist.
(1933)
