"It is an incontrovertible fact of history that the greatest art has always been about something, a means of communicating some truth which is assumed to be more important than the art itself. The truths which art has been able to communicate have been of a kind which could not be put in any other way. They have been ultimate truths, stated symbolically." - Sir Kenneth Clark
"The identity behind this surface display of duality [male and female]...identity behind it all...all these are manifestations of the one...the one radiance shines through [behind] all things."
"The function of art, in a way, is to reveal, through the object [hiding] the radiance...and that's what you get when you see the beautiful organization of a fortunately composed work of art. You just say, ahah...somehow it speaks to the order in your own life. This is a realization, through art, of the very thing that the religions are concerned to render."
"You have to have a balance between life and death. They're two aspects of the same thing...which is being...becoming."
"The conscience [in us] is the god."
