„Weissenbruch to Vincent van Gogh:.. now that I have seen your work, I will take sides for you. They call me 'the sword without mercy', and I am - and I would not have said anything like that to Anton Mauve about you if I had not found any good in your sketches.“

—  Jan Hendrik Weissenbruch Dutch painter of the Hague School (1824-1903) 1824 - 1903

version in original Dutch: Weissenbruch tegen Vincent van Gogh: ..nu ik je werk gezien heb zal ik partij voor je trekken. Zij noemen mij ‘het zwaard zonder genade’, en dat ben ik ook, en ik zou zoo iets niet tegen Mauve over je gezegd hebben, als ik geen goeds gevonden had in je studies.

„When you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.“

—  William Saroyan American writer 1908 - 1981

Preface
The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze (1934)
Kontext: The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

—  Alexej von Jawlensky Russian painter 1864 - 1941

Jawlensky is looking back on his encounter with French art through his voyage with Marianne Werefkin to Normandy and Paris, in 1903 when he discovered Van Gogh
