“The influence of art is so powerful in shaping our lives for a higher appreciation of the creations of our God that we cannot afford to neglect an acquaintance with it.

We should be eager for its companionship as we are eager for food to sustain our lives, for it has as important a mission in shaping our character and in conducting to our happiness as anything that we term necessities. Life is incomplete without it.”

— John Hafen 1856-1910
