Art, Artists & Mental Health Crises
All human life is filled with works of art of every kind — from cradlesong, jest, mimicry, the ornamentation of houses, dress, and utensils, up to church services, buildings, monuments, and triumphal processions.
It is all artistic activity. So that by art, in the limited sense of the word, we do not mean all human activity transmitting feelings, but only that part which we for some reason select from it and to which we attach special importance.
While there is man's life he can perfect himself and serve the Universe. But he can serve the Universe only by perfecting himself and perfect himself only by serving the Universe.― Leo Tolstoy
