- Kurt Vonnegut
Some food for thought...
I think I shall recite this the next time I'm questioned on the values of the Arts as a career choice/hobby/pursuit.
They are not a way to make a living indeed - they are the way to make a life. To make life bearable. Even more than bearable - beautiful. They are a way to make the soul 'grow.'
What, pray tell me, could be more important than that??
