Forget the "we". Ask why Annie needs to learn art. You gotta figure out
an answer for just YOU.

First, imagine all the things that are important to art. Next, imagine the
world without any things like that or a world where they are only used
when they absolutely had to be, when it would be an emergency NOT to use
them. Now, imagine a world without anything special forever.

If I gave you the choice, which world would you chose to live in forever?


That's your answer.
