                                 GOD SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF THE GREATEST MINDS (Click on title for information)


 

EUGÈNE DELACROIX

"God is within us: it is that inner presence which makes us admire the beautiful, which rejoices us when we have done right and consoles us for not sharing in the happiness of the wicked. It is that, beyond a doubt, which constitutes the inspiration of men of genius and which warms them at the spectacle of their own productions." (Pack, 1972, 697)

“Does nature promise us that we shall love and possess one another elsewhere, without this disquiet and anxiety that accompany our happiest moments? The woods and the springs tell me so.” (Delacroix, 1971)
