The moral life of man forms part of the subject-matter of the artist, but the morality of art consists in the perfect use of an imperfect medium.

No artist desires to prove anything. Even things that are true can be proved.

No artist has ethical sympathies. An ethical sympathy in an artist is an unpardonable mannerism of style.

No artist is ever morbid. The artist can express anything.

Thought and language are to the artist instrument of an art.

Vice and virtue are to the artist material for an art.

人的道德生活构成艺术家部分的创作素材,然而艺术的道德性在于完美地运用一种不完美的方法。
