“You read something which you thought only happened to you, and you discovered that it happened 100 years ago to Dostoyevsky. This is a very great liberation for the suffering, struggling person, who always thinks that he [sic] is alone. This is why art is important. Art would not be important if life were not important, and life is important.” – James Baldwin, Conversations With James Baldwin, 21 (Interview) http://ift.tt/1OEQRXe
