“The biggest and widest canvas that you could paint would be the canvas of a life. A man could actually achieve the level of being a professionally beautiful ‘liver.’ He could. There are some people you are glad to know simply because they seem to lead a beautiful life. It’s interesting, isn’t it?
“So people say we have to go hungering after art through painting, writing and so forth. And what are these people doing? They’re writing about, they’re painting about, composing about life.

Author, Louis E. Boone
