|"Out in the wilds I would like to own a crenellated castle, with a tower of grey stone and timbers of pine and oak. There I would brood on my own, spend a few hours in my laboratory, a few in my library, and the rest of the day forging metal, painting and sculpting."|
|"I can always reach the point where my country will be content with myachievements, but my ambition reaches much farther! Everything or nothing, first or last. That is the motto I want to keep for the rest of my life."
