„Painting certainly means more to me than everything else in the world. I think my mind becomes clearer when I am in the presence of nature. Unfortunately, the realization of my sensations is always a very painful process with me. I can't seem to express the intensity which beats in upon my senses. I haven't at my command the magnificent richness of color which enlivens Nature... Look at that cloud; I should like to be able to paint that! Monet could. He had muscle.“

Quote in a conversation with Vollard, along the river near Aix, 1896; as quoted in Cezanne, by Ambroise Vollard, Dover publications Inc. New York, 1984, p. 74

„The inner sensation which I have of myself informs me that I am, that I think, that I will, that I have sensory awareness, that I suffer, and so on; but it provides me with no knowledge whatever of what I am — of the nature of my thought, my sensations, my passions, or my pain — or the mutual relations that obtain between all these things … I have no idea whatever of my soul.“

—  Nicolas Malebranche philosopher 1638 - 1715

Dialogues on Metaphysics (1688) Dialogue III
Kontext: I am unable, when I turn to myself, to recognize any of my faculties or my capacities. The inner sensation which I have of myself informs me that I am, that I think, that I will, that I have sensory awareness, that I suffer, and so on; but it provides me with no knowledge whatever of what I am — of the nature of my thought, my sensations, my passions, or my pain — or the mutual relations that obtain between all these things … I have no idea whatever of my soul.

„.. I therefore got around to painting [in Amsterdam, 1883] and that's why teaching started to become a burden for me. So then it HAD to happen now: Make or break! And I asked my dismissal at the school, threw away my 2500 florin a year, sacrificed everything, although I never made any painting yet, and certainly sold nothing at all. And my acquaintances, my family, they found me reckless and shamefully frivolous with my sacrifice to art, for which they did not felt any sympathy or understand anything of it after all.“

—  Suze Robertson Dutch painter 1855 - 1922

(version in original Dutch / origineel citaat van Suze Robertson:) ..ik kwam zodoende meer aan 't schilderen [inmiddels in Amsterdam, 1883], waardoor 't lesgeven me begon te bezwaren. Dus dan MOEST het ook maar: erop of eronder! En ik vroeg mijn ontslag aan de school, gooide mijn f 2500,- per jaar weg, offerde àlles op, hoewel ik nog nooit 'n schilderij gemaakt, laat staan iets verkocht had. En m'n kennissen, m'n familie, ze vonden me roekeloos en schandelijk lichtzinnig met mijn offer aan de kunst, waarvoor ze immers niets voelden of van begrepen..
