Marilyn Manson quote
The burden of originality is one that most people don't want to accept. They'd rather sit in front of the TV and let that tell them what they're supposed to like, what they're supposed to buy, and what they're supposed to laugh at.
~ Marilyn Manson (January 05, 1969 - )
As I see it, the most effective way to do this is frankly to accept these historical tales for what they are now known to be - folklore - and treat them in such a fashion that the realistic-minded, sophisticated people of our generation accept them... I sincerely hope that this painting will help reawaken interest in the cherry tree tale and other bits of American folklore that are too good to lose.
~ Grant Wood (February 13, 1892 - February 12, 1942)
