It is the business of the artist to make humanity aware of itself.
If a patron buys from an artist who needs money (needs money to buy tools, time, food), the patron then makes himself equal to the artist; he is building art into the world; he creates.
The only thing one can give an artist is leisure in which to work. To give an artist leisure is actually to take part in his creation.
Artists are the antennae of the race but the bullet-headed many will never learn to trust their great artists.
The artist is always beginning. Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth.
