From The Best Spiritual Writing 2013 by Philip Zaleski

Marmaduke Pickthall "inimitable symphony, the very sounds of which move men to tears and ectasy"

The work of these people has one thing in common ... it is art in the service of eternity

as Dante enunciated in his letter to Can Grande "to remove those living in this life from the state of misery and to lead them to the state of bliss"

The artist is the servant, not a master; his stumbling block is pride; his path to humility

With every stroke of pen or brush, he must remind himself to do his best to bring to light something better than himself

to see everything ... in proper perspective as a mundane, valuable means toward a transcendent, invaluable goal
