The Sad Beauty of Paul Cezanne in Words

Because I love Cezanne and what he had to say that almost made me cry today, I am posting a quote that floated by me on Twitter just now.  It is beautiful and sad so be prepared.

Fruits ... like having their portrait painted. They seem to sit there and ask your forgiveness for fading. Their thought is given off with their perfumes. They come with all their scents, they speak of the fields they have left, the rain which has nourished them, the daybreaks they have seen. Cezanne
