“Ultimately it comes down to making yourself and the people who can share it with you, in some way, more themselves, to make you more yourself, to make human beings more themselves, and therefore, by extension, better, stronger, more real.

Let’s get out of that. The function of any art is to move, more deeply, to make us more whoever we are.”
