 During WWII Churchill was asked…                                                                                         to cut funding for the arts.    

He replied,                                                                                

“Then, what are we fighting for?” 

— urban legend

“The  arts  are essential to any complete national life.  The State owes it to itself to sustain and encourage them… ill fares the race [human] which fails to salute the arts with the reverence and delight which are their due.”

— WINSTON CHURCHILL
