"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Happy birthday, Eakins.

Eakins, Hiawatha, 1874

Thomas Eakins was born on this day in 1844.

Enthusiasm for one's goal lessens the disagreeableness of working toward it.
