July 2014 Motto

Hippolyte_taine “Beneath every literature there is a philosophy. Beneath every work of art an idea of nature and of life…. Whoever plants the one,  plants the other…. Place in all the minds of any age a grand idea of nature and of life, so that they feel and produce it with their whole heart and strength, and you will see them seized with the craving to express it, invent forms of art and groups of figures.” —Hippolyte Taine
