Self-expression is not enough; experiment is not enough; the recording of special moments or cases is not enough. All of the arts have broken faith or lost connection with their origin and function. They have ceased to be concerned with the legitimate and permanent material of art.
Jane Heap (c. 1880–1964), U.S. artist and editor. As quoted in My Thirty Years' War, ch. 6, by Margaret Anderson (1930).
From her farewell editorial, published in the last issue of The Little Review, a prominent, eccentric, influential literary and arts magazine founded by Anderson in 1914 and coedited by Heap from 1916 until its demise in 1929.
