Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


Art itself, in all its methods, is the child of religion. The highest and best works in architecture, sculpture, and painting, poetry and music, have been born out of the religion of nature.
James Freeman Clarke.—Ten Great Religions, Part II. Chap. IX. Paragraph 7.

Art is the gift of God, and must be used
Unto His glory.
Longfellow.—Michael Angelo, Part I. 3.
