A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #69

The interest of an artist is the only limitation placed upon use of material, and this limitation is not restrictive. It but states a trait inherent in the work of the artist, the necessity of sincerity; the necessity that he shall not fake and compromise.

– from the chapter “The Common Substance of the Arts” in Art as Experience by John Dewey.
