Until the last century, it was commonly assumed that painting was the highest art form, but in the 20th century, we gave up hierarchical ranking of the art forms. Most painters, (1) _____ they recognize painting is now a minor player in the art world, remain quietly convinced that painting remains the ‘queen of the arts.’ And they’re on to something with this.
But (2) ______ you’re right that valuing painting’s history boils down to no more than celebrating habit writ large, serious painters look for painters from the past in order to lift stuff. As Picasso famously put it, “Good artists borrow; great artists steal.” Artists who embrace the historical roots to their paintings are not embarrassed; on the contrary, they like this part of painting.

“No one can blame victims and their families for wanting revenge, including through the death penalty. In their pain and loss, they are entitled to that desire.

If they do anyway (if, for example, a victim kills a perpetrator) then they become perpetrators and pay the price, both legally and morally. (4) _______ we may feel empathy with such a victim seeking revenge, Nietzsche’s warning-that when fighting monsters you must take care not to become one yourself-should be remembered.
