Pasternak (Doctor Zhivago) on art

“More vividly than ever before he realized that art has two constant, two unending concerns: it always meditates on death and thus always creates life. All great, genuine art resembles and continues the Revelation of St. John.”

(from the scene where Zhivago is walking behind the funeral procession of his friend)
