Art is science made clear.
-- Jean Cocteau.

Found today in Google's 'quote of the day' feature.

    oh? would have thought it was the other way round - art being obscure and science crystal clear and all that...? what do you think of this quote?

    Charu, I just found this quote full of hubris. I should deal with this guy carefully, though. He is the author of this as well:

    "The worst tragedy for a poet is to be admired through being misunderstood."

    yes, and arcane... I was wondering why you felt it was impressive or interetsing enough to feature on your blog :)

    I would say it is the other way round - Science is art made clear.

    That makes it more logical.

    Samudrika: Yes. I posted it here because I found it so interesting that an artist can get away with such inflated hubris.
