Art is the way to the absolute and to the essence of human life. The aim of art is not the one-sided promotion of spirit, soul and senses, but the opening of all human capacities - thought, feelings, will - to the life rhythm of the world of nature. So will the voiceless voice be heard and the self be brought into harmony with it.
Artistic skill, therefore, does not mean artistic perfection. It remains rather a continuing medium of reflection of some step in psychic development, the perfection of which is not to be found in shape and form, but must radiate from the human soul.
