A Portrait of the Artist as a young Man / A Portrait of a Young Man as an Artist

 "....Beauty expressed by the artist cannot awaken in us an emotion which is kenetic or a sensation which is purely physical. It wakens, or ought to awaken, or induces, or ought to induce, an esthetic stasis, an ideal pity or an ideal terror, a stasis called forth, prolonged and at last dissolved by what I call the rhythm of beauty."

" ...We are right, he said, and the others are wrong. To speak of these things and to try to understand their nature and, having understood it, to try slowly and humbly and constantly to express, to press out again, from the gross earth or what it brings forth, from sound and shape and colour which are the prison gates of our soul, an image of the beauty we have come to understand--that is art."
