Art teaches us that people never are what they should be -- the late
Arthur Miller was not the first in this line.
Coul;d you give an example of what you mean by "being honest with art"?
I really don't understand what you
Among my choices are:
"honestly, that piece stank"
"honestly, I don't understand this piece"
"honestly, I prefer the theme music for "family affair" to late Beethoven"
"honestly, I did not have the emotions that seemed called for in this music"
"honestly, I believe that secret messages are encoded in this music that
