It's late, I'm exhausted and my mind is easily impressionable.
Am I an idealistic teen?:

"By art alone we are able to get outside ourselves, to know what another sees of this universe which for him is not ours, the landscapes of which would remain as unknown to us as those of the moon... instead of seeing one world, our own, we see it multiplied and as many original artists as there are, so many worlds are at our disposal, differing more widely from each other than those which roll round the infinite and which... send us their unique rays many centuries after the hearth from which they emanate is extinguished."
-Marcel Proust. In Search of Lost Time, Vol. VII: The Past Recaptured. 1927
