The title of this song is:

"Every work of art is the child of its age and, in many cases, the mother
of our emotions. It follows that each period of culture produces an art of
its own which can never be repeated. Efforts to revive the art-principles
of the past will at best produce an art that is still-born. It is
impossible for us to live and feel, as did the ancient Greeks. In the same
way those who strive to follow the Greek methods in sculpture achieve only
a similarity of form, the work remaining soulless for all time. Such
imitation is mere aping. Externally the monkey completely resembles a human
being; he will sit holding a book in front of his nose, and turn over the
pages with a thoughtful aspect, but his actions have for him no real
