“To me, the true artist is one who lives completely, harmoniously, who does not divide his [her] art from living, whose very life is that expression, whether it be a picture, music, or his [her] behavior; who has not divorced his [her] expression on a canvas or in music or in stone from his [her] daily conduct, daily living. That demands the highest intelligence, highest harmony. To me the true artist is the man [woman] [human] who has that harmony. He [She] may express it on canvas, or he [she] may talk, or he [she] may paint; or he [she] may not express it at all, he [she] may feel it. But all this demands that exquisite poise, that intensity of awareness, and therefore his [her] expression is not divorced from the daily continuity of living.”
