While doing some research for a script, I found this:

From my blog: " Philippe de Montebello, the recently retired director of The Metropolitan Museum Of Art, was once confronted at a press conference for making the museum an elitist institution, why has he not reached out to, say, black kids in Harlem or the working class.

His reply was, in effect, "Yes, this is an elitist institution. And yet anyone can walk in off the street, go into the galleries, and learn about the world through the art. No one is stopping you at the door and telling you that you are too poor, too ethnic, too this or that. Everyone is welcome. The very moment you choose to enter The Metropolitan is the moment that you, yourself, become elite." "

I saw this in a magazine article and liked it:

"When you throw a stick for a dog, he runs after it. But throw a stick for a lion and he turns around to see who threw it".

It's supposed to be a Buddhist teaching that says not everything is worth chasing after.  Interesting....hmmmm?
