The nail that sticks out gets hammered down.

The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

The horse that pulls best gets whipped the most.

A leopard can't lose his spots.

If humans are made in the image of god, then the entire universe is in trouble.

I'm OK, You're Not (Psychological self-help book title from the seventies.)

Different is better.

Just do it.

Just say no.

Just say no and do it.

Art is either a sociological process, that defines it's own ethics through definiton of esthetic or correct composing of word, pictures, sculptures movement etc. or an evolution that enhances scientific innovation beyond simple recognition of facts but improving standars through man made esthetic projections of reality , that somehow define man's own mind within the scope of his society. The richer the art-world of a society get's the more different brilliant ideas can be transferred to other disciplines.
There is no general definition of art, it varies with society, politics, religion etc. that's why it is so difficult to define. The best example is image analysis and image postprocessing , that somehow give a new way to look at filtering stochastic differential equation in a more art like way. For example rescaled foerstner operators can produce like in my diploma thesis , van gogh like pictures after postprocessing images with it.
