Thomas Cole
Quotations



"How I have walked... day after day, and all alone, to see if there was not something among the old things which was new! "

"To walk with nature as a poet is the necessary condition of a perfect artist."
 
"Must I tell you that nether the Alps nor the Appenines, no, nor even Aetna itself, have dimmed, in my eyes, the beauty of our own Catskills? It seems to me that I look on American scenery, if it were possible, with increased pleasure. It has it's own peculiar charm - a something not fond elsewhere. I am content with nature: would that I were with art!"
