Rheta Childe Dorr
“The artist must be an egotist because, like the spider, he draws all his building material from his own breast. But just the same the artist alone among men knows what true humility means. His reach forever exceeds his grasp. He can never be satisfied with his work. He knows when he has done well, but he knows he has never attained his dream. He knows he never can.”
Rheta Childe Dorr, U.S. journalist, suffragist, newspaper editor, political activist
(1866 - 1948)
Full name: Rheta Louise Childe Dorr.
