We were at San Francisco Airport this past weekend and one of the exhibits had this quote by Freidrich Schiller posted.  Schiller (1759-1805) was a German playwright, philosopher and poet (to name just a few)- and new to me.  I loved how he caught a little of the sentiment of why I love text so much.  Just as he expressed- it gives body and voice to what otherwise would be lost in silence.  And I love how he captured the idea of the “speaking page” carrying thoughts down through the ages.  He had some other cool quotes as well:  “Art is the daughter of freedom”.  Hmmmm – I have to chew on that one for awhile.  And another: “Grace is the beauty of form under the influence of freedom”.  Hmmm – more chewing needed.
