On This Day: October 25, 1925—Duty and beauty

“It must be understood once and for all that duty as a separate entity is simply outside the province of beauty.

“Of course a compromise can and sometimes must be made.  The rule in this case is this: that whatever there is of duty must be subordinated to the dominant intention of beauty.

“The constant struggle is between duty and beauty.”
