Education ought to teach us how to be in love, always and with what to be in love. The great things of history have been done by the great lovers, saints, men of science and artists. The problem of civilization is to give every man a chance of being a saint, a man of science or an artist. But this problem cannot be solved unless men desire to be saints, men of science and artists. And if they are to desire that continuously, they must be taught what it means to be these things. We think of the man of science, or the artist if not of the saint, as a being with peculiar gifts who exercises more precisely and incessantly perhaps, activities which we all ought to exercise.
It is a common belief that art has ebbed away out of our ordinary life, out of all the things, which we use, and that it is practiced no longer to recognize the aesthetic activity as an activity of the spirit and common to all men. We do not know that when a man makes anything, he wants to make it beautiful; and when a man buys anything he demands beauty in it. We think of beauty, and if we think of it at all, as mere a source of pleasure, and therefore it means to us an ornament added to things for which we can pay extra as we choose. But neatly is not an ornament to life, or the things made by man. It is an essential part of both.
