The Third Reich will always retain its right to control the owners of property.
    -- Adolf Hitler

  • The gospel of cheerfulness, I had almost said the gospel of amusement, is preached by people who lack experience to people who lack vitality. There is a vague impression that the world would be a good world if it were only happy, that it would be happy if it were amused, and that it would be amused if plenty of artificial recreation - that recreation for which we are now told every community stands responsible - were provided for its entertainment.
    -- Agnes Repplier

This purpose and potential have always been there, but individuals and communities have largely lost touch with them.
    -- Alan Hirsch
