Never Marry

As Camille Pisarro walked towards the door, Corot cried:

"One more thing,. Take this as advice from an old man. Never marry. The road is too long and hard. Families, responsibilities weigh heavily; they prevent you from getting your work done. Women, yes; love, too. You are already in love with art. Remain faithful."

Besides, Camille loved Paris bohemia

He walked to the brasserie Andler, two doors away from Coubert's studio. Gustave Coubert gave Camille a shouted welcome.

"So you did come. Meet my colleagues. Soyez unis commes les doigts de la main..."
