Washington, D.C., has everything that Rome, Paris and London have in the way of great architecture - great power bases. Washington has obelisks and pyramids and underground tunnels and great art and a whole shadow world that we really don't see. Dan Brown
There are worlds of experience beyond the world of the aggressive man, beyond history, and beyond science. The moods and qualities of nature and the revelations of great art are equally difficult to define; we can grasp them only in the depths of our perceptive spirit. Ansel Adams
Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world. Edward Hopper
The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude. Friedrich Nietzsche
Great art should be shown with great excitement.
