ideas

A Quote by Wystan Hugh Auden on art, belief, good, ideas, simplicity, and work

All works of art are commissioned in the sense that no artist can create one by a simple act of will but must wait until what he believes to be a good idea for a work "comes" to him.

W.H. Auden (1907 - 1973)

A Quote by W. G. Sibley on authority, crime, eternity, government, happiness, ideas, respect, revolution, service, truth, and world

All the wild ideas of unbalanced agitators the world over in their ignorant and pitiable quest for happiness through revolution, confiscation of property, and crime, cannot overthrow the eternal truth that the one route to happiness through property or government is over the broad and open highway of service. And service always means industry, thrift, respect for authority, and recognition of the rights of others.
