You know I had this idea as well and thought of implementing it, but this one line thing is no good if your serious about it.
"Fascism combats, and must combat, without respite or pity, not intelligence, but intellectualism—which is, as I have indicated, a sickness of the intellect" - Giovanni Gentile

”After visiting these places, you can easily understand how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had boundless ambition for his country which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.”- John F. Kennedy

Eyes, any chance you can condense these lines into one? By "one line at a time" I meant one line per poster, at a time.

Pursuant of life and death congruent - entombed in flux of movement.

I'd say this is rather exceedingly than less than artsy. I appreciate differences in style between the lines.
