"The battle for a sustainable, healthy, diverse, and beautiful world is not only a battle for land-use laws and policies, but is a battle for the human imagination; the arts are the doorway into the human imagination; the human race is capable of embracing change and achieving greatness; and great work can best be done with joy and laughter." - Malcolm Margolin
