great art

"Great art is when you come across an object and you have a fundamental personal one on one relationship with it and you understand something you didn't already understand about what it means to be alive.  

That is why people with loads of money want to possess it.  
That's why it's worth so much fucking money.  
But it isn't.  
They want to possess it. 
But you can't.  
Throw money at art, you get nothing back.  
You die."

-- On the Way to Work by Damien Hirst, Gordon Burn
