When Power Leads Man Toward Arrogance, Poetry Reminds Him Of His Limitations.

HomeFortune CookiesMiscellaneous Collections

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his
limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry
reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When
power corrupts, poetry cleanses, for art establishes the basic human
truths which must serve as the touchstone of our judgement.
-- John F. Kennedy
