I rejoice to hear that thou takest pains with thine art, for in this wonderful new age, art is worship. The more thou strivest to perfect it, the closer wilt thou come to God. What bestowal could be greater than this, that one's art should be even as the act of worshipping the Lord? That is to say, when thy fingers grasp the paintbrush, it is as if thou wert at prayer in the Temple. ( 'Abdu'l-Bahá, Compilations, The Importance of the Arts in Promoting the Faith)
Science does not attempt to address, nor is it capable of addressing, the mystery of our existence, our moments of transcendence, our search for meaning, love, or our mortality. It deals in what can be proved or disproved. But powerful non-rational forces in human life exist that cannot be quantified. To pretend they do not exist is to be as stunted as those who use the Bible to discredit science. ... many of our greatest and most profound insights often come to us through the intuitive language of symbols, allegories, and dreams. (Chris Hedges, On God: The Language of Dreams Search Magazine)
Worthwhile art requires something of us. It insists that we become participants, what J. R. R. Tolkien has called 'sub-creators,' in the process of understanding the ideas and insights to which the artist has given sensually perceptible form. Art which does not require this creative effort on our part usually has little of importance to say to us. Art which has no subtlety, which does not stretch us beyond our present awareness, simply reminds us of what we already know. (John Hatcher, The Divine Art of Revelation)
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance, and this, and not the external manner and detail, is true reality. (Aristotle)
