How important are the visual arts in our society? I feel strongly
the visual arts are of vast and incalculable importance. Of course
could be prejudiced. I am a visual art.

Founding Fathers Quotes
Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power
in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force
superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.
Noah Webster, An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 1787
I want to know God\'s thoughts; the rest are details. --Albert Einstein
Two loves I have of comfort and despair,
Which like two spirits do suggest me still:
The better angel is a man right fair,
The worser spirit a woman colour\'d ill.
To win me soon to hell, my female evil,
Tempteth my better angel from my side,
And would corrupt my saint to be a devil,
Wooing his purity with her foul pride.
And whether that my angel be turn\'d fiend,
Suspect I may, yet not directly tell;
But being both from me, both to each friend,
I guess one angel in another\'s hell:
Yet this shall I ne\'er know, but live in doubt,
Till my bad angel fire my good one out.
