Michael Jackson, Art & Life
Michael Jackson was undeniably one of this world's greatest artists.
His art will "live on", as we say.
Much has been written about art imitating life.
I read a great quote by William Faulkner relating to that:
"The aim of every artist is to arrest motion,
which is life... and hold it fixed so that
a hundred years later, when a stranger
looks at it, it moves again since it is life."
This is why we appreciate art -- if we do :)
But "as time goes by"..."we must remember this":
There is life...
And then there is Life!
Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." -- John 14:6
He also said, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." -- John 10:10
"He who has the Son has Life. He who does not have the Son does not have Life." --1 John 5:12
