Creative Wisdom from Arthur C. Danto

".... My main thought is that creativity should lead to work that others are interested in. I've been successful as an artist, a philosopher, and an art critic. In each of these I tested them to see if anybody cared, that is, would anybody pay for them. I made livings in each case, though philosophy proved to be the main source of interest to others. If nobody is interested, in this sense of the term, it would be very difficult to keep being creative."
