"Most of what we inherit is so clearly correct it goes unseen. It fits the world seamlessly. It is the world. But despite its richness and variability, the well-defined world we inherit doesn’t quite fit each one of us, individually. Most of us spend most of our time in other peoples’ worlds — working at predetermined jobs, relaxing to pre-packaged entertainment — and no matter how benign this ready-made world may be, there will always be times when something is missing or doesn’t quite ring true. And so you make your place in the world by making part of it — by contributing some new part to the set. And surely one of the more astonishing rewards of artmaking comes when people make time to visit the world you have created. Some, indeed, may even purchase a piece of your world to carry back and adopt as their own. Each new piece of your art enlarges our reality. The world is not yet done."

From the highly-recommended book, Art & Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards of Artmaking), by David Bayles and Ted Orland

The biggest challenge for any artist in our time is to seek beauty beyond so many ugly things staining our proximate visions, to sing dreams rising above a wailing chorus over countless dreams lost and perished in our midst, and to embrace peace among ceaseless explosions of violence ripping through our livelihood. It takes courage to face this challenge.
