The less a man thinks or knows about his virtues, the better we like him. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
All art is but imitation of nature.
The task of art is enormous. Through the influence of real art,
aided by science, guided by religion, that peaceful co-operation of man is
now obtained by external means-by law courts, police, charitable
institutions, factory inspection, etc.-should be obtained by man\'s free
and joyous activity. Art should cause violence to be set aside. And it is
only art that can accomplish this.
Leo N. Tolstoy
No person who is not a great sculptor or painter can be an architect. He can only be a builder. -John
Ruskin, Lectures on Architecture and Painting, 1853
