“We may consider the material world as the clay which the artist works with, to make of it something beautiful or ugly. We need not fear material things, which are neither good nor bad in the moral sense. There seems to be no active force for evil—outside of human beings themselves. Humans alone can have either evil intentions—resentments, malevolence, hate and revenge—or good intentions—love and good will, They can make something ugly or something beautiful out of the clay of their lives.” — Twenty-Four Hours a Day entry for December 19
