"La explicacion del interes en el pasado se halla en la adquisicion de la conciencia du una nobleza heredada. No como los hijos sin padreque se recatan en la sombra, sino como hijos que saben que tienen ancestros valiosos y se ponen a indagar su--ancestral grandeza. Y este es el hecho mas importante: lograr la plena conviccion de que Mexico no es un improvisado en la cultura" Angel Ma. Garibay K.
