Inventing Bones

In one of my favoriate lines from Skinny Legs and All, Ellen Cherry is asked by Boomer Petway what art is, and she tells him it's making something you always wanted to see. My quote's not on that page linked above, but one that is & that I like & had forgotten goes:
Those people who recognize that imagination is reality's master, we call "sages", and those who act upon it, we call "artists".

"But really, if we're all going to be honest with ourselves, I have to admit that acheiving the end of the exercise was never the point of the exercise to begin with, was it?"
