Art is not a pleasure, a solace, or an amusement; art is a great matter. Art is an organ of human life, transmitting man's reasonable perception into feeling. In our age the common religious perception of men is the consciousness of the brotherhood of man -- we know that the well-being of man lies in union with his fellow-men. . . . Art should transform this perception into feeling.

Leo Tolstoy
in What is Art?
