1900 - 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
