#811 Culture as human spirit

Culture, the acquainting ourselves with the best that has been known and said in the world, and thus with the history of the human spirit. ~ Matthew Arnold

No culture can live, if it attempts to be exclusive. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

One ought every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words. ~ Goethe 

- What do you value about several cultures of which you are a part?

- What song, poem, painting, words... have enriched you?

- How has culture been a source of strength and inspiration for you?

- What positive quality could you contribute to a negative culture?
