Stran 250 - Art is a human activity, consisting in this, that one man consciously, by means of certain external signs, hands on to others feelings he has lived through, and that other people are infected by these feelings, and also experience them.

"Truth"! I cried, "though the Heavens crush me for following her : no Falsehood ! though a whole celestial Lubberland were the price of Apostasy.

And I'll say to them: "Come, sweet friends of the blue skies, Poor creatures who with a flap of the ears or a nod Of the head shake off the buffets, the bees, the flies . . ."
