    The truth is that art judges us.

    Art judges our taste.

    Art judges our sense of humour.

    Art judges our common sense.

    Art even judges our morals.

    So whenever I see a work of art, I reach for my revolver, and defend myself.
    There is NOTHING--absolute nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing.

    Also -- there are some pretty objective things that we factor into our assessments of art, especially as a collective.

    (I haven't really vetted this list for direct relevance, but this stuff came to mind)
