„In our culture, we think that happy and color is trivial, that black and darkness is deeper.“

—  Julie Taymor American film and theatre director 1952
Academy of Achievement interview (2006), Context: In our culture, we think that happy and color is trivial, that black and darkness is deeper. But Nietzsche said — which is a line that I firmly believe — "Joy is deeper than sorrow, for all joy seeks eternity." And if you see Grendel, you'll see, as he's on the edge of the abyss, ready to leap to his death, he sings, "Is it joy I feel? Is it joy I feel?" And it's so, so moving. You can have a lot of different explanations for the ending of that opera, but there is something so palpable that you will feel when he sings those lines.

„I have focused on your desire to bring in more effect [in the watercolor].... with more light in the drawing, [what] was not the least difficult.... [this operation] has passed tricky moments; but I believe I have remained master of the area and have made a drawing [watercolor] of aspect [? ] and color.“

—  Willem Roelofs Dutch painter and entomologist (1822-1897) 1822 - 1897
1860's, translation from original Dutch: Fons Heijnsbroek (original Dutch: citaat van Willem Roelofs, in het Nederlands:) Ik heb mij op uw verlangen toegelegd er meer effect in te brengen.. ..met méér licht in een teekening [= aquarel] te brengen, [wat] niet van de minst moeijelijke was.. ..[deze bewerking] heeft kwade oogenblikken doorstaan; maar ik geloof meester gebleven te zijn van het terrein en er eene Teekening [aquarel] van aspect [?] en kleur gemaakt te hebben. In a letter to Pieter verLoren van Themaat, 17 Feb. 1864; in Haagsch Gemeentearchief / Municipal Archive of The Hague Mr. verLoren van Themaat had asked for some changes in an already purchased watercolor, made by Roelofs: a landscape with duck decoys, near the village Meerkerk
