"Some day you may be old as I am. Please take my advice, and don't waste your short life. Invest your youthful vitality in your art. Share the best of your spirit with the world. Your body will die, but you cannot die. So, don't worry about petty things like bodies, money, and possessions. They pass with the body and are meaningless. Don't worry what anyone thinks of you. Don't seek approval, except from yourself. Your art and ideas are signs of your spirit.
Your beauty endures forever, as do you."
