Quote of the Week

I don't have a quote book like Julie D but I do like my quotes. I've just found a new source to add to my other sources so I might as well start passing on my favorites. Here's the first:

"Culture is a sham if it is only a sort of Gothic front put on an iron building -- like Tower Bridge -- or a classical front put on a steel frame -- like the Daily Telegraph building in Fleet Street. Culture, if it is to be a real thing and a holy thing, must be the product of what we actually do for a living -- not something added, like sugar on a pill."

Arthur Eric Rowton Gill (February 22, 1882 November 17, 1940) was a British sculptor, typographer and engraver. And apparently a Catholic. I've got to find out more about this guy.
