What is the greatest miracle of creation?
Man!
Man in his most perfect and ideal form.
There is no greater subject which would be more worthwhile to use as a standard.
Man is the crowning achievement of creation! To form man ever anew, to recreate creation, is as old as mankind itself: The unity of spirit and form achieved a new image of mankind in the art of antiquity. The works of the sculptors of that time still today hold us in their spell.
The heights and depths of this century have not been able to divert me from remaining true to the perfect, the ideal. I strive always for the highest form of perfection in sculpture.
The variety of creation among human beings is infinite. Beauty of form, harmony of soul, spirit, and body is found not only in Europe; it exists on all continents.
The images of man which I create are not idealized. They embody ideals and characteristics which are worthy for all men: human dignity, peace, respect, friendship, tolerance, and freedom.
Jean Cocteau—my artist friend since our early days—let himself be guided throughout his full life by the principle:

"I love to love.
I hate hatred.”


With all my heart I agree with that, and I have never lost faith in the good. This is a source of strength for my work.
Once Cocteau said to me: “Your work contains the fire of the image of man—like the Phoenix … “
I believe in this light. It will not be extinguished.

Arno Breker, 1980

There is no greater subject which would be more worthwhile to use as a standard.

Man is the crowning achievement of creation! To form man ever anew, to recreate creation, is as old as mankind itself: The unity of spirit and form achieved a new image of mankind in the art of antiquity. The works of the sculptors of that time still today hold us in their spell.

quod-ultimum-contione:

Please, I beg of you all with the precious gift of a vote, let us not build borders and divisions, let us not make relatives and friends, even men who fought and died alongside one another into foreigners.

Be Britain still to Britain true,
Amang ourselves united;
For never but by British hands
Maun British wrangs be righted!
No! never but by British hands
Shall British wrangs be righted!

Robert Burns, Scottish poet - 1795

Oklahoma state Sen. Bennett: American Muslims are a ‘cancer in our nation that needs cutting out’
Sep. 17 2014
Oklahoma state Senator John Bennett (R) came under fire last week for comments he made about Muslims in America.
The Tulsa World reports that yesterday he doubled down on those comments, refusing to apologize “because I’m right, and they know I’m right.”
Bennett claims that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) “used political pressure to make me back down, but I didn’t and I’m not going to.”
“Islam,” he began, “if you bring it up as a non-Muslim, you’re called a ‘racist,’ or a ‘bigot,’ or an ‘Islamophobe.’ That’s what I was called by CAIR.”
“But the truth is,” Bennett said, “I’m speaking the truth.”
He said that “I’ve read the Koran,” and “90 percent of it is violence. And only 10 percent of it is conciliatory, or what some would say is the ‘peaceful’ part of the Koran.”
Bennett went on to say that he would talk about “Islam, and Muslim, and what the difference is between Islam and Muslim, and what those really mean.”
“I’m going to talk about threat of ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood, and CAIR, which is right here in the state of Oklahoma.”
“Is there a difference between moderate and radical Islam?” he asked, before answering, “I say, ‘No.’”
After attempting to describe the difference between “Muslim and Islam,” Bennett asked, “How can I be racist against Muslims or Islam when the ethnicity is actually Arab? This is kind of confusing.”
he added, but “the media is playing right into their hands.”

He then said that the goal of all Muslims is “the destruction of Western civilization from within. This is a cancer in our nation that needs to be cut out,”
AGREE.
