"Michelangelo's Pieta' is entirely self-sufficient, the proud creation of a single man and a bravura performance intended to excite the admiration of the crowd. Whatever magic was present would be conveyed through the perfection of its form and the power of the artist's singular vision, his ability to solve different problems of composition....it was a showpiece, a technical Tour de Force....he was creating, first and foremost, a work of art"
- about the MICHELANGELO's creation PIETA; from the book; MICHELANGELO: A LIFE IN SIX MASTERPIECES by author Miles J. Unger
"Hindsight is 20/20 but when you strive for greatness and longevity it is always in full view. Only those who see but can't understand will have hindsight"

"Having witnessed his work firsthand, I suspect James D. Watkins may be agenius of some shape or magnitude. Just try to forget that that endorsement comes from a guy who voted for Mondale and DuKakis, gave 'Death to Smoochy' four stars and genuinely preferred New Coke. An old-school impresario in the mold of Ziegfeld or Welles-albeit one spared the crippling handicaps of funding or common sense......"
"When I am gone, they will love me" - quote from Orson Welles right before he died and who also directed what many consider the greatest film ever'CITIZEN KANE'.
