Wisdom from an old issue of LIFE, published in 1967.
“Elegance is the same thing in everything – in a house, in a flower, in a horse, in a woman – something that satisfies you esthetically.”
“I like art in every manifestation because I consider it not only lovely to look at but also a great distraction. It can in fact be a total distraction from everyday problems – half an hour for instance in a good art gallery and one forgets everything.”
“I would like my son to follow me but if he thought his life or natural instincts were somewhere else, I wouldn’t be surprised or shocked. As long as he liked doing it, I would be happy.”
“There’s a lot of work and sweat involved in an economic miracle. The world always makes it sounds as though somebody waved a magic wand. But there was no magic wand.”
