Art is what makes us human.

Go here, my people:

And then, if you're as furious as I am (and if you agree with the Yarn Harlot, as I so frequently do), go here and say so to the man in question:

"Art is an effort to create, beside the real world, a more humane world."
- Andre Maurois

arts and creativity (creative arts) are the cornerstone of my life…
Art enhances our ability to communicate ideas and feelings in ways that words
fail. How and why this is I am not capable of explaining. But there is definitely
something very powerful in a well wrought painting, musical score, photograph,
movie, theatre or poem;
This work of arts represent the real world and also display something more than just an imitation of nature.
"The secret of art is to correct nature"...This is a very representative quotation.
I think it also explains why art is an effort to create beside the real world a more Human world.
The artist has the power to conquest our world and to change it, correct it.
He creates a better world.
His work of art is a product of imagination and desire of representing a better world.
The artist conquered and gained power over the world by purposefully directing public opinion about it through their respective works.
In this way they create a more Human world.
I agree this statement and I think it Is significant in representing our dreams.
Our world is not the way we want it to be.
That’s why art helps us change it.
Make it better.
So create…make art…
And you will make an effort to create beside the real world a more human world!!!
