On Art - Oscar Wilde

This quote was added by wake-the-winds
No artist is ever morbid. The artist can express everything. Thought and language are to the artist instruments of art. Vice and virtue are to the artist material for an art. Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril. We can forgive a man for making a useful thing as long as he does not admire it. The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely. All art is quite useless.
