Michelangelo Buonarroti | 267 Drawings | Part.²

  • "In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it".
  • "It is necessary to keep one's compass in one's eyes and not in the hand, for the hands execute, but the eye judges".
  • "It is well with me only when I have a chisel in my hand".
  • "Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish".
  • "Many believe - and I believe - that I have been designated for this work by God. In spite of my old age, I do not want to give it up; I work out of love for God and I put all my hope in Him".
