Just in case you’re still coming down from post-semester stress, here are a few happy little quotes from the artist’s iconic television show “The Joy of Painting.”

  1. “The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe.”
  2. “Talent is a pursued interest. Anything that you’re willing to practice, you can do.”
  3. “Water’s like me. It’s lazy. Boy, it always looks for the easiest way to do things.”
  4. “We don’t really know where this goes — and I’m not sure we really care.”
  5. “Gotta give him a friend. Like I always say, ‘Everyone needs a friend.’”
  6. “Didn’t you know you had that much power? You can move mountains. You can do anything.”
