"Made out of materials from our efforts to construct our civilization, to build cities, to fight wars. It balances on a board. What we do has to have balance. The conditions to get us from the past to now, to get the cities built, to get our ship to go from one coast to another, we had to suffer but we did it and we got there." —Lonnie Holley
