Oscar Wilde: “It is through Art, and through Art only, that we can realize our perfection; through Art, and through Art only, that we can shield ourselves from the sordid perils of actual existence.” And: “All that I desire to point out is the general principle that Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life.” John Keats: “A man’s life of any worth is a continual allegory.” Friedrich Nietzsche: “Art represents the highest task and the truly metaphysical activity of this life.”
