What do you think is the duty of art in our lives?

Should art disturb us or is it merely there to please us? Both? In this quote, I believe that Cesar very succinctly captures the role that art plays in our lives–or, at least, the role that it should play, sometimes though, art is just … nice (but nice never has the power to move us).
