«A Work of Art... is not a living thing ...that walks or runs.But the making of a life.That which gives you a reaction.To some it is the wonder of Man's Fingers.To some it is the wonder of the Mind.To some it is the wonder of Technique.And to some it is how Real it is.To some, how Transcendent it is.Like the 5th Symphony it presents itself with a feeling that you know it, if you have heard it once.And you look for it,and though you know it you must hear it again.Though you know it you must see it again.Truly a work of Art is one that tells us, that Nature cannot make what man can make.»
