While the French critical artist J. F. Raffaeli was walking beside the village Barbizon, he saw Y. B. Corot drawing a picture of fields with forests in the background. Raffaeli noticed that Corot drew a small pond amidst the fields. Therefore, he was astonished at this and asked Corot, “Why did you draw a pond of drinkable water while there is none?”
Corot answered, “Young man, it’s now eleven o'clock. I came to this field at six o'clock in the morning and I’m very thirsty. I drew this pond to refresh myself.”
My journey has been long.
I draw a picture of heaven in my heart,
So that it may spring abundantly with water from You O God,
That I would not require the water of this world which does not quench my thirst.
Have you Ever Been Arrested?
