Henri Rousseau “Quotes”
Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.

Excuse my scribbling, it is late, and I have a poor candle.

I cannot now change my style, which I acquired, as you can imagine, by dint of labour.

It is often said that my heart is too open for my own good.

Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.
