“Life is composed of two movements, which may be called the ebb and the flow.  The artistic movement is the flow, and all that is opposed to the artist, and to his creation, his creativity, is the ebb.  All that is evil, such as cynicism, bitterness, and lying, belongs to the ebbing of the power of life, while the flowing is concerned with man's vision and his faith and his acknowledgment of the truth.  Every lie, every denial . . . makes a man a little less than he was, or what he was intended to be, so, finally, lie by lie, he is diminished until in the end he lies to his own will.”
