Leonard #Bernstein (John Gruen interview in Los Angeles Times, December 31, 1972)

“The point is, art never stopped a war and never got anybody a job. That was never its function. Art cannot change events. But it can change people. It can affect people so that they are changed…because people are changed by art – enriched, ennobled, encouraged – they then act in a way that may affect the course of events…by the way they vote, they behave, the way they think.” -Leonard #Bernstein (John Gruen interview inĀ Los Angeles Times, December 31, 1972)
