"Every man has an inborn love for the beautiful. Primitive man at first fashioned his utensils for purely utilitarian purposes, as he became accustomed to their uses he became also dissatisfied with their rude appearance, and the spirit of decoration took possession of him. This is manifested in his early pottery and weapons of warfare. Through successive ages that instinctive love for decoration has manifested itself in all mankind."
Thomas Francis Googerty - 1911
