"Art rises above and beyond the issues of the day. It reunited what has been rent asunder, not along national or religious lines, but along individual, human ones. It heals, redefines goals, and strengthens the resolve to move on, to rebuild, to reconstruct. However obtuse human behaviour is in other arenas, art, if not suborned, can clarify, put into perspective and re-inspire."

-Lorin Maazel

"The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation."

-Auguste Rodin
