Famous quotes containing the words museum and/or village:
“The Museum is not meant either for the wanderer to see by accident or for the pilgrim to see with awe. It is meant for the mere slave of a routine of self-education to stuff himself with every sort of incongruous intellectual food in one indigestible meal.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
“The village appeared to me a great news room.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
