human endeavor. - Paul Getty

that is felt. - Odilon Redon

quotation just my opinion, an opinion likely to evoke comments, possibly acclaim, most certainly

process. - Jim Hodges

consideration. - Edward Steichen

market or the debates in congress. - Hendrik Willem Van Loon

artist it has, wishing it had more artist. ~Robert Brault
