Ode to Artist in Paris



Here is an inspiring inscription on this Paris monument near the Eiffel Tower as it is written in gold…    

Tout homme crée sans le savoir
 Comme il respire
 Mais l’artiste se sent créer
 Son acte engage tout son être
 Sa peine bien-aimée le fortifie‘ 

  translated as follows…  

‘Any man creates without realizing it
Just as he breathes
But the artist feels himself creating
His act engages his whole being
His beloved sorrow fortifies him’
