Art is not a competition

Art is not a competition, it's not an achievement . Liking music does not make you cool. The art you create makes you cool.

Every now and then I come across this meme:
It's smug and snarky. When I meet someone that feels this way then I don't want to be friends with them.  If you share your art then the feeling they get from experiencing it belongs to them.  If you experience someone else's art then that feeling belongs to you, the art does not.
