"There exists a universal human voice ..."

The Ballad of Hollis Brown

There exists a universal human voice of much broader circumference than has hitherto been imagined."
(Alfred Wolfsohn, The Biography of an Idea)

He realized that what matters is not whether life loves us, but that we love life and are able to express that love.
(from a lecture on Alfred Wolfsohn and Charlotte Salomon by Sheila Braggins in 2007)
