„The result of the struggle between the thought and the ability to express it, between dream and reality, is seldom more than a compromise or an approximation.“

—  M. C. Escher Dutch graphic artist 1898 - 1972
Context: The result of the struggle between the thought and the ability to express it, between dream and reality, is seldom more than a compromise or an approximation.

—  Giorgio Morandi Italian painter 1890 - 1964
from an interview, 1955; as quoted in Morandi 1894 – 1964, ed: M. C. Bandera & R. Miracco, Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna, 2008; p. 38
