To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.
Giorgio de Chirico
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time.

Marcus Tullius Cicero
