Why art? 

"The object of all art is to obtain a partial revelation of that which is beyond human senses and human faculties - of that which is in fact spiritual... The human, visible, audible and intelligible media which artists (of all kinds) use, are symbols not of other visible and audible things but of what lies beyond sense and knowledge".
- Ralph Vaughan Williams

(A hidden gem found quoted in the liner notes to a CD I bought last week).
