From the Jessica Esch: Fill in the Blanks exhibition 

Original Statement:
"I think a text should be strong and able to stand alone. Illustrations should tell the story without words. Together they're stronger, just as in a marriage. You don't want to be half a person and lean on the other. But two whole people make something very strong." -M.B. Goffstein
