Attachment & Art

You must respect art not for art’s sake but for your own. Your obsession with what you find meaningful and personal even though it will never know you exist will make you and everything you touch monstrous. You will spend many long, wakeful nights in your grave pondering over what you have destroyed, never knowing that it sits lifeless in the skeletal cavity of your chest.

    This one got me so much on the first read that I didn’t figure how to respond. After a long contemplation, I am inclined to agree that those words needed me to give them some attention. A moment of silence.
    And I resolved to appreciate art, and its influence. Thank you.
