“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.” (Albert Einstein 1879-1955)

"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)
