Robert Thurman compares life to art.

Topic: Life as Art

Robert Thurman: Well life is art, you know, if you’re enjoying it, then it becomes an art of how to enjoy it more and how to bring others into that, and you can’t be enjoying life unless you are sharing that enjoyment with others, because it’s impossible to enjoy it when the vibes of others around you are suffering, so in a way life is art, or should be art, you know, life well lived is art, and, and therefore, and expressing yourself is art, and helping others to see things that are new that they didn’t see before is art, all that is art, and that’s, that’s what’s fun.
