"What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do." John Ruskin

John Ruskin was a philanthropist, patron, critic and social thinker. In 1858, he was present when Cambridge School of Art first opened its doors; over time, the art school grew to become Anglia Ruskin University.
