Famous quotes containing the words museum, church and/or history:

    The Museum is not meant either for the wanderer to see by accident or for the pilgrim to see with awe. It is meant for the mere slave of a routine of self-education to stuff himself with every sort of incongruous intellectual food in one indigestible meal.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Waste and void. Waste and void. And darkness on the face of the deep.
    Has the Church failed mankind, or has mankind failed the
    Church?
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    We may pretend that we’re basically moral people who make mistakes, but the whole of history proves otherwise.
    Terry Hands (b. 1941)
