Famous quotes containing the words center and/or arts:
“Columbus stood in his age as the pioneer of progress and enlightenment. The system of universal education is in our age the most prominent and salutary feature of the spirit of enlightenment, and it is peculiarly appropriate that the schools be made by the people the center of the days demonstration. Let the national flag float over every schoolhouse in the country and the exercises be such as shall impress upon our youth the patriotic duties of American citizenship.”
—Benjamin Harrison (18331901)
“The arts are the salt of the earth; as salt relates to food, the arts relate to technology.”
—Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (17491832)
