A description of the experience
Shakespeare and spiritual life – John Masefield
The greatest artist is he who is most helped. .... Great art does not proceed from a great criticism, but from great encouragement. The great mind being given his opportunity, does great things, and it is from these that criticism derives such principles as it has. The great times of art are those when power has the intelligence to encourage it.
