They are poles apart in feeling. But carving is a slow business, and if one works for too long a stretch upon a carving which satisfies only one side of one’s nature, one becomes restive, one tends to become absorbed by projects which have not yet been started, and one’s crowing anxiety to be done with the thing one is working on will show in some of the forms. But if there is something with a quite different content on the go at the same time there is an interplay of one’s interests.
— Henry Moore, “Sculpture in the Open Air”
