Quotes & Wishes - A cultural necessity A cultural necessity

This role is not merely scientifically important, but it is also a cultural necessity.
(Dry Store Room No. 1: The Secret Life Of The Natural History Museum)

Quotes & Wishes - Sources of pleasure and inspiration Sources of pleasure and inspiration

Museums and art stores are also sources of pleasure and inspiration. Doubtless it will seem strange to many that the hand unaided by sight can feel action, sentiment, beauty in the cold marble; and yet it is true that I derive genuine pleasure from touching great works of art. As my finger tips trace line and curve, they discover the thought and emotion which the artist has portrayed.
Helen Keller
