The Mirror of the Sea

"We remain in everlasting bondage to the productions of our brain and to the work of our hands. A man is bound to serve his time on this earth, and there is something fine in the service being given on other grounds than that of utility. The bondage of art is very exacting."
-Joseph Conrad, The Mirror of the Sea

At times, as artists, we look to the words of our colleagues for inspiration, justification, fortification (making art is tough business).
