WORDS OF NOTE

The artist appeals to that part of our being which is not dependent on wisdom; to that in us which is a gift and not an acquisition - and, therefore, more permanently enduring. He speaks to our capacity for delight and wonder, to the sense of mystery surrounding our lives; ... to the latent feeling of fellowship with all creation.

* As quoted in 'Wisdom and Beauty from Conrad,' compiled by M. Harriet Capes.
