“I’m not telling you to make the world better, because I don’t think that progress is necessarily part of the package. I’m just telling you to live in it. Not just to endure it, not just to suffer it, not just to pass through it, but to live in it. To look at it. To try to get the picture. To live recklessly. To take chances. To make your own work and take pride in it. To seize the moment.
”Art is a conversation. And if there’s no conversation, what the hell is it about?”
“When you’re in the shit up to your neck, there’s nothing left to do but sing.”
“The rules are in my head.”
