Famous quotes containing the words testing and/or laboratory:

    Now I see that going out into the testing ground of men it is the tongue and not the deed that wins the day.
    Sophocles (497–406/5 B.C.)

    Today, each artist must undertake to invent himself, a lifelong act of creation that constitutes the essential content of the artist’s work. The meaning of art in our time flows from this function of self-creation. Art is the laboratory for making new men.
