„If we are to repudiate the Old Testament and banish it from our schools and from our national libraries, then we must disown our German classics.“

—  Michael von Faulhaber, Context: The German classics honoured the Scriptures of the Old Testament... If we are to repudiate the Old Testament and banish it from our schools and from our national libraries, then we must disown our German classics. We must cancel many phrases from the German language... We must disown the intellectual history of our nation.

„Every day I am thinking about the Art school [which Walden wants to start in Germany, since 1915-16]... If our pursuit is really to make great progress in future, the Art school must produce individualities who can with our assist really continue from their inside and start creating on their own, without always studying the pictures of other artists. (translation from German, Fons Heijnsbroek, 2018)“

—  Jacoba van Heemskerck Dutch painter 1876 - 1923
(original version, written by Jacoba in German:) Ich denke immer viel über die Kunstschule nach [ die Walden seit 1915/16 anfangen möchte].. .Wenn unser Streben wirklich in der Zukunft grosse Fortschritte machen soll, muss die Kunstschule Individualitäten hervorbringen, die durch uns wirklich vo inneren heraus weiter können und anfangen zu schaffen, ohne immer Bilder von anderen zu sehen. Quote in a letter of Jacoba van Heemskerck to Herwarth Walden in Berlin, 15 August 1917; as cited in Jacoba van Heemskerck, kunstenares van het Expressionisme, Haags Gemeentemuseum The Hague, 1982, pp. 15-16
