If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ …

…then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
~Vincent Van Gogh

More than two tens to a score…

Mark it, nuncle.
Have more than thou showest,
Speak less than thou knowest,
Lend less than thou owest,
Ride more than thou goest,
Learn more than thou trowest,
Set less than thou throwest,
Leave thy drink and thy whore
And keep in-a-door,
And thou shalt have more
Than two tens to a score.
