Painting and sculpture help other people to see what a wonderful world we live in. (Henry Moore)

I don't know of any good work of art that doesn't have a mystery. (Henry Moore)

The secret of life is to have a task, something you devote your entire life to, something you bring everything to, every minute of the day for the rest of your life. And the most important thing is, it must be something you cannot possibly do.(Henry Moore)
