“I am convinced that everything that is worth while in the world has been accomplished by the free, inquiring, critical spirit, and that the preservation of this spirit is more important than any social system whatsoever. But the men of ritual and the men of barbarism are capable of shutting up the men of science and silencing them forever." (Doremus Jessup, 'It Can't Happen Here' 1935 by Sinclair Lewis 1885-1951)

"It is true that good walls and extensive spaces are very important, but works of art tend to remain silent when they are not facilitated to deliver their message. It is the care and the professional ability of the ones who believe in what these artworks have to say, that make all the difference." (Samuel Bak 1933)

"Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor."
(Sholem Aleichem 1859-1916)
