"  Art when fully understood is the province of every human being.  
It is simply a question of doing things, anything, well.  It is not an
outside extra thing.

When the artist is alive in any person, whatever his kind of work
may be, he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self -
expressing creature.  He becomes interesting to other people.  He
disturbs, upsets, enlightens, and he opens ways for a better
understanding.  Where those who are not artists are trying to close
the book, he opens it, shows there are still more pages possible.

The world would stagnate without him, and the world would be
beautiful with him;  for he is interesting to himself and he is
interesting to others.  He does not have to be a painter or
sculptor to be an artist.  He can work in any medium.  He simply
has to find the gain in the work itself, not outside it."
