Joseph Low, "I do nothing but go about persuading you all, old and young , 1952, gouache and pencil on paper mounted on paperboard, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Container Corporation of America, 1984.124.193
"I do nothing but go about persuading you all, old and young alike, not to take thought for your persons or your properties, but first and chiefly to care about the greatest improvement of the soul. I tell you that virtue does not come from money, but that from virtue comes money and every other good of man, public as well as private."--Socrates on the Good of Man. From the series Great Ideas.
