..."But art is not a mere passtime, or amusement, or diversion. It fulfills a basic human need like eating and sleeping and sex. If anyone doubts this, look at the way impoverished peoples all decorate themselves, their dwellings, their conveyances, even their cattle when they have cattle. Art is ubiquitous from the richest of the rich to the poorest of the poor. And that is because it goes to the very nature of our humanity. We're made in the image of a maker, and our hearts are restless until we make something. That's why merely talking about art is so unsatisfying...you've got to make some!"
