The Painting Thief

Recently a guy in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre. However, after planning the crime, breaking in, evading security, getting out and escaping with the goods, he was captured only two blocks away when his Econoline van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied:
"I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh."


Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.
~Amy Lowell (1874 - 1925)


“Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.”

~ Theodore Isaac Rubin
