Wisdom on Wednesdays—Where there is Life, there is art

“Whenever in the past we have had mystical life and corporate life existing one in the other, a unity with stress laid upon the mystical (that is, Religion) there we have had art.  Where there is Life, there is art.  Where there is true religion art cannot be stopped.  Where there is no true religion art cannot be encouraged by a million up-lifters.”  (“Ritual: The Gate” (1925))
