To artists

Spring by Thomas Wilmer Dewing, 1890

"To have an art at your finger tips and in your mind, as you have, is a trust; you are meant to develop and use it, partly because it is only by doing so that you can fully integrate your own personality - and that is another way of saying 'save your soul' - and partly because you must give to the world, to the millions who are starved for beauty, the beauty that God has given into your trust for that purpose..."

~ Caryll Houselander, (From the Letters of Caryll Houselander)
