A dolgozó test éppen úgy tárulkozott ki előtte, mint korábban a szerelmes test. Az élet új kinyilatkoztatása ez. Ám ez az alkotó annyira a maga dolgai közt él, annyira a saját művei mélységében, hogy kinyilatkoztatásokat nem is képes felfogni másként, mint saját művészete egyszerű eszközeivel. Új élet, ez az ő számára végső fokon: csak új felületek, új mozdulatok. Így vált egyszerűvé körülötte minden. Többé már nem tévedhet. Rodinnak ez a fejlődése útmutatás ebben a tanácstalan korban minden művészetnek. Egyszer majd felismerik, mi tette olyan naggyá ezt a nagy művészt: az, hogy munkás volt, s nem vágyott másra, csak arra, hogy minden erejével behatolhasson szerszáma közönséges és kemény munkájának titkaiba. Ebben volt némi lemondás is az életről, de éppen ezzel a türelemmel nyerte el az életet: mert vésőjéhez odasereglett a világ.
