Gravura de Hokusai, Hibiscus and Sparrow (c. 1832, Museu Nacional das Artes Asiáticas-Guimet, Paris).
At seventy-three I learned a little about the real structure of animals, plants, birds, fishes and insects. Consequently when I am eighty I'll have made more progress. At ninety I'll have penetrated the mystery of things. At a hundred I shall have reached something marvellous, but when I am a hundred and ten everything I do, the smallest dot, will be alive.
