"All the different branches of art receive their inspiration from the same root. What is that root? I believe it is a passionately strong feeling for the poetry of life – for the beautiful, the mysterious, the romantic, the ecstatic – the loveliness of nature, the lovability of people, everything that excites us, everything that starts our imagination working, laughter, gaiety, 'pretending' in the way that children do, strength, heroism, love, tenderness, every time we see – however dimly – the god-like that is in everyone – and want to kneel in reverence." - Leopold Stokowski
