Thanks. I offer a few in exchange:

"...we must carry arts to the people, not wait for the people to come to
the arts." Arthur Mitchell, Dance Theater of Harlem

"I found that I could say things with color and shapes that I had no words
for." Georgia O'Keeffe

"Now more than ever, all people need to see clearly, hear acutely, and
feel sensitively through the arts. These languages are no longer simply
desirable but are essential if we are to convey adequately our deepest
feelings, and survive with civility and joy." Ernest L. Boyer

"Dogs are bred to work with humans. They get very sad when they are
not involved. And despite my silly photographs, it's serious work, and the
dogs take it seriously." William Wegman

"ART is refining and evocative translation of the materials of the world."
Gwendolyn Brooks
