M.C. Escher Quote

At moments of great enthusiasm it seems to me that no one in the world has ever made something this beautiful and important.
M.C. Escher, Netherlands, 1898-1972

I love this quote because I've seen the eyes and faces of children who've created their own art and they beam with pride and confidence similar to Escher's. At which point I feel so privileged to be in their presence.
