A Quote by Anita Loos on art, education, inflation, life, nations, obsession, people, politics, popularity, sex, and taxes

That our popular art forms have become so obsessed with sex has turned the U.S.A into a nation of hobbledehoys; as if grown people don't have more vital concerns, such as taxes, inflation, dirty politics, earning a living, getting an education, or keeping out of jail.

A Quote by Andrew Linzey on beauty, creation, creativity, education, intuition, laws, obedience, understanding, virtue, and worth

Moral education, as I understand it, is not about inculcating obedience to law or cultivating self-virtue, it is rather about finding within us an ever-increasing sense of the worth of creation. It is about how we can develop and deepen our intuitive sense of beauty and creativity.

Andrew Linzey (1952 -)
