John W. Gardner
Hunting, fishing, drawing, and music occupied my every moment. Cares I knew not, and cared naught about them.
John James Audubon
A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.
I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.
When I see a white piece of paper, I feel I've got to draw. And drawing, for me, is the beginning of everything.
By an irony of fate, my first employment was as a draughtsman. I hated drawing; it was for me the very worst of annoyances. Fortunately, it was not long before I secured the position I sought, that of chief electrician to the telephone company.

Vincent Van Gogh
