„I felt I had I worked hard enough and I felt confident I had done the right kind of work and the right amount of work. But when you talk of preparations, the measure of success is whether it works or not. In that area, I failed completely. I did not stay the course. When you hit the right spot, the sweet spot, it feels great and you feel the preparations have been ideal, but I never got there.“

„Well, sure, when you have some success, you also work with more self-confidence and ease. But before that time; that awkward question: am I going to sell or not. All the same I never took notice of it regarding to my work.“

—  Suze Robertson Dutch painter 1855 - 1922
(version in original Dutch / origineel citaat van Suze Robertson:) O zeker, wanneer je wat succes hebt, werk je ook met grooter zelfvertrouwen en met grooter gemak. Maar daarvóór; die penibele kwestie: zal ik [kunnen] verkoopen of niet. Toch heb ik mij daar voor mijn werk nooit aan gestoord. p. 33
