There is a deep yearning for the expression of eternal things that lies at the roots of great art. It seldom seems to find satisfaction these days because so much of what has taken the place of art in our lives is hostile to the things of eternal worth. Nevertheless, if we are to commit ourselves to producing art, that yearning is the source of what we do and moves our spirits toward the discipline, the energy, and the dedication required.
