Words to Remember

"It is important to know that the opportunity we give to the arts is a measure of the quality of our civilization.  It is important to be aware that artistic activity can enrich the life of our people; which is the central object of government.  It is important that our material prosperity liberate and not confine the creative spirit."

- President Johnson, at the groundbreaking ceremony for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Arts on December 2, 1964
