It is art that makes life…makes interest…makes importance, and I know of no substitute for the force and beauty of its process. (Henry James, 19th-20th century novelist)
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, they say. Very likely, author James would say the same thing about art. How devoid of beauty and vivid expression would modern life be without paintings, sculpture, theater, and literature? Yet, there are many who do not take advantage of opportunities to enjoy such creations. What a shame! Look around and see the art in life.
Teach those who are rich in this world . . . [that] their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment (1 Timothy 6:17).
