In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.
If all life moves inevitably towards its end, then we must, during our own, colour it with our colours of love and hope.
Despite all the troubles of our world, in my heart I have never given up on the love in which I was brought up or on man's hope in love. In life, just as on the artist's palette, there is but one single colour that gives meaning to life and art–the colour of love
