high art

A Quote by Richard Wagner on high art, god, truth, art, theatre, and future

I believe in God, Mozart and Beethoven and likewise their disciples and apostles; I believe in the Holy Spirit and the truth of the one indivisible art; I believe that this art proceeds from God and lives in the hearts of all illuminated men; I believe that he who once bathes in the sublime delights of this high art, is consecrate to her forever, and never can deny her; I believe that through art all men are saved."

Richard Wagner (1813 - 1883)

A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on high art, sacrifice, stability, and happiness

"But that's the price we have to pay for stability. You've got to choose between happiness and what people used to call high art. We've sacrificed the high art. We have the feelies and the scent organ instead."

Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963)
