In art, progress does not consist in extension, but in the knowledge of limits…Nobility grows out of contained emotion. Emotion should not be rendered by an excited trembling; it can neither be added on nor be imitated. It is the seed, the work is the flower. I like the rule that corrects the emotion.

Georges Braque, “Reflections on Painting”
