Pearls from artists* # 464July 21, 2021
*an ongoing series of quotations – mostly from artists, to artists – that offers wisdom, inspiration, and advice for the sometimes lonely road we are on.
Only through art can human beings express and share the archetypal powers that shape the universe.
To abandon art would mean forfeiting the gift of vision, which, by all appearances, was given to humans alone.
To reclaim it might enable us to recover our faith in this world, and act in accordance with that faith for the benefit of life on earth.
