The Artists' Drive

"Artists don't wonder, What is it good for? They aren't driven to create art, or to help or teach people or to make money. They are driven to lessen the burden of the unbearable disparity between their conscious and unconscious minds, and so to achieve peace."
David Mamet

  3. Constantinus Magnus sometimes reminds me Heraclitus
