"text": "I wished you to be persuaded, that success in your art depends almost entirely on your own industry; but the industry which I principally recommend, is not the industry of the hands, but of the mind...

He can never be a great artist, who is grossly illiterate... He ought to know something concerning the mind, as well as a great deal concerning the body of man.",

"author": "Tristan Tzara",
"date": "1918",
"text": "A work of art is never beautiful by decree, objectively and for all.
