A Quote by William Faulkner on art, life, and immortality

The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, It moves again since it is life.  Since man is mortal, the only immotality possible for him is to leave something behind him that is immortal since it will always move.  This is the artists way of scribbling "Kilroy was here" on the wall of the final and irrevocable oblivion through which he must someday pass.

William Faulkner (1897 - 1962)
