Alfred Hitchcock // "I have a feeling that inside you somewhere, there's somebody nobody knows about."
Joseph Conrad // "My task is to make you hear, to make you feel, and, above all, to make you see. That is all, and it is everything."
Yayoi Kusama // "Earth, moon, sun and human beings all represent dots; a single particle among billions."
Alexander McQueen // "I design clothes because I don't want women to look all innocent and naive. I want women to look stronger. I don't like women to be taken advantage of. I don't like men whistling at women in the street. I think they deserve more respect. I like men to keep their distance from women, I like men to be stunned by an entrance...I want people to be afraid of the women I dress."
Björk // “Create a paradise anywhere you go.”
James Baldwin // “It is not true that people become liars without knowing it. A liar always knows he is lying, and that is why liars travel in packs: in order to be reassured that the judgement day will never come for them. They need each other for the well-being, the health, the perpetuation of their lie. They have a tacit agreement to guard each other’s secrets, for they have the same secret. That is why all liars are cruel and filthy minded—one’s merely got to listen to their dirty jokes, to what they think is funny, which is also what they think is real.”
Charles Bukowski // "Your life is your life. Don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission. Be on the watch. There are ways out. There is light somewhere. It may not be much light but it beats the darkness. Be on the watch. The gods will offer you chances. Know them. Take them. You can’t beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes. And the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be. Your life is your life. Know it while you have it. You are marvelous. The gods wait to delight in you."
Maya Angelou // “We may act sophisticated and worldly but I believe we feel safest when we go inside ourselves and find home, a place where we belong and maybe the only place we really do.”
Michael Jackson // “Study the greats and become greater.”
