" Quotes that make sense are cool"

I have been searching through my books for quotes about artmaking, creativity, etc. that I plan to display at my two art shows in April. My alltime favorite so far is from George Szekely in his fabulous book, Encouraging Creativity in Art Lessons.
He says, "The heart of this teaching approach is the belief that the essential goal of art teaching is to inspire children to behave like artists-to try on the artist's role-to feel what it is to gather an art idea on one's own and act on it. The goal is to reveal to children that art comes from within themselves-not from the teacher."
