„I believe we have to put art back at the center of everyday life rather than allowing it to become a specialist activity at the margins of society.“

—  Martin Firrell, Quoted in The International Herald Tribune (19 September 2005).

„Deeds rather than words express my concept of the part religion should play in everyday life.“

—  Walt Disney American film producer and businessman 1901 - 1966
Context: Deeds rather than words express my concept of the part religion should play in everyday life. I have watched constantly that in our movie work the highest moral and spiritual standards are upheld, whether it deals with fable or with stories of living action.

„The arts put man at the center of the universe, whether he belongs there or not.“

—  Kurt Vonnegut American writer 1922 - 2007
Context: The arts put man at the center of the universe, whether he belongs there or not. Military science, on the other hand, treats man as garbage — and his children, and his cities, too. Military science is probably right about the contemptibility of man in the vastness of the universe. Still — I deny that contemptibility, and I beg you to deny it, through the creation of appreciation of art.

„I came to art because I wanted to escape the other regulations of the society. The whole society is so political. But the irony is that my art becomes more and more political.“
