I really like the word ‘profound,’ as if its suffix is ‘sound.’ And that’s what I think of: a deep bass, a slow vibration, a long echoing call in the darkness
"No one can tell what the painting of tomorrow will be like. Painting can be judged only after it has once been made. What connection does this have with ethics? We are in the same creative situation. We never say that a work of art is arbitrary. When we speak of a canvas of Picasso, we never say that it is arbitrary; we understand quite well that he was making himself what he is at the very time he was painting, that the ensemble of his work is embodied in his life.
What art and ethics have in common is that we have creation and invention in both cases. We can not decide a priori what there is to be done.”
Sartre, Existentialism and Human Emotions
