“Art… is the one orderly product which our middling race has produced… it is the lighthouse which cannot be hidden”

from Douglas Moore’s Art of Quotation

Art of Quotation

“Art for art’s sake? I should think so, and more so than ever at the present time. It is the one orderly product which our middling race has produced.

It is the cry of a thousand sentinels, the echo from a thousand labyrinths, it is the lighthouse which cannot be hidden. It is the best evidence we can have of our dignity.”

E. M. Forster, English, writer
