Critic: I never liked your show. But I always thought the people did.

P. T. Barnum: They did. They do.

Critic: Mind you, I wouldn’t call it art.

P. T. Barnum: Of course not.

Critic: But… putting folks of all kinds on stage with you… all colors, shapes, sizes… presenting them as equals… Why, another critic might have even called it “a celebration of humanity.”

P. T. Barnum: I would’ve liked that.
