When the artist is alive in any person,
whatever his kind of work may be, he
becomes an inventive, searching, daring,
self-expressive creature. He becomes
interesting to other people. He disturbs,
upsets, enlightens and opens ways for a
better understanding. Where those who are
not artists are trying to close the book, he
opens it and shows there are still more
pages possible.

- Robert Henri, The Art Spirit
