Diamonds out of Dust

Works of Art as Diamonds Out of Dust

How Diamonds are Made

You would be amazed at the fact that
diamonds are made from the same substance that the lead in your pencil or coal is made up of. The only difference is that atoms are arranged more tightly in a diamond, which makes them harder. This bond is formed when carbon is exposed to extreme temperatures and very high pressure. Rare diamonds of high value develop deep underground: more than 100 miles below the surface.

Now I’ll copy the above paragraph and change some of the words, to see if my analogy will hold up...

You would be amazed at the fact that
works of art are made from the same substance that the rotten/noble/dreary/inspiring/mundane emotions in your day or life is made up of. The only difference is that emotions/thoughts are arranged more tightly in a work or art, which makes them more lasting. This art is formed when emotions/thoughts are exposed to extreme temperatures and very high pressure (deadlines?). Rare diamonds of high value develop deep underground: more than 100 miles below the surface.  (take that last statement figuratively - it still fits).
