(Carl Atteniese Jr.)

Science isn’t a matter of belief, but it does require faith in humanity, honesty, honor, sufficient psychological health and intelligence.
The elements of Art, like the elements of Love, are all around. Whether we make art with a capital ‘A’ or a small ‘a’, or love with a capital ‘L’ or a small ‘l’, is a matter of composition.
