I love this incredible world's blaze of light and color, shadow, the nearly invisible, changing things, impossible things, fantastic things, ridiculous and bizarre things.
"All I have produced before the age of 70 is not worth taking into account. At 73, I learned a little about the real structure of nature… when I am 80, I shall have made still more progress. At 90, I shall penetrate the mystery of things; at 100, I shall have reached a marvelous stage, and when I am 110, everything I do, whether it be a dot or a line, will be alive." Preface to "The Hundred Views of Fuji" by Hokusai
