French term or phrase:St. Thomas Aquinas quote
"L'art est promesse de bonheur et la beaute splendeur du vrai." Does anyone know if there is a standard translation for this phrase? Thanks, Karen
Explanation: Thank you for your offer, but there's no indication in the text where this quote comes from. I did a Web search and couldn't find the quote. In any case, it might just be a paraphrase since there are no quotes around it, so I'll just do my best in interpreting it. Karen
