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

 

PIERRE AUGUSTE RENOIR

     "I believe that I am nearer to God by being humble before this splendour (Nature); by accepting the role I have been given to play in life; by honouring this majesty without self interests, and, above all, without asking for anything being confident that he who has created everything has forgotten nothing." (Weaver, 1962, 218) 

     "I believe, therefore, without seeking to understand. I don't wish to give any name to God, to statues or to paintings. For Him is above everything that is known. Everything that is made for this purpose, is in my humble opinion, a fraud.” (Ibid., 218)
