The contours of the artist’s ego

The contours of the artist’s ego are always greater than the contours of reality! Artists must keep their egos in check. They must at all times resist the temptation to believe that they are geniuses!

Nature is the only force I know that can do that. Studying nature gives our talents perspective. We are reassured by observing its complexity and beauty that we are very small indeed!
