Respect for Art

“Some foundations are required to keep a national alive and you know that one of the most important of these is arts. If a nation lacks arts and artists, it cannot have a full life. Such a nation is like a person whose one leg is limp, one arm missing, who is disabled and sick. Even this word is not adequate to express what I mean. Once a nation is deprived of arts, one of its life-blood veins has been broken. Unless a nation gives importance to arts, it is condemned to a great disaster. Many constituents are unaware of the degree of that disaster

And when they become aware of it, they become aware that they have to work in overwhelming sweat and blood”
