I taught a lot of art history, especially Chinese,
by Ad Reinhardt

I taught a lot of art history, especially Chinese,

You play to your own soul.

but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.

If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
