Work of Art


To say that a work of art is good, but incomprehensible to the majority of men, is the same as saying of some kind of food that it is very good but that most people can't eat it
There is no prejudice that the work of art does not finally overcome
Treat a work of art like a prince. Let it speak to you first
The mediator of the inexpressible is the work of art
The moment you think you understand a great work of art, it's dead for you


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
