If there is any man who has no right to solitude, it is the artist. Art cannot be a monologue.

[Fashion] is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life. I don’t think you could do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization.

We are perennially encouraged to cultivate our own style. But when I think of this woman and the kind of surreal glamour she glided in at night and the clean austerity she exuded during the day, I can’t help but want to imitate her completely. She transcended chic so effortlessly, and no one even comes close to this day.

Appreciation should be much more private than everyone recognizing what you’re wearing. It’s better not to buy the ‘significant clothes’ of a season, because even though they are really marvelous things, there are others which are just as beautiful, and quiet. I don’t think we are meant to go around just being great consumers of things…. There’s no point parading in all sorts of finery if it’s hollow underneath.

There is nothing more interesting than women, and nothing more exciting. Their biggest attraction is being mysterious. You absolutely cannot understand them.

…Every woman has an interesting face and life. If it were possible, I would like to live forever, and to face every woman.

Arākī

[via The New York Times]

Butter means they love you. Butter means they know you’re hurting. Butter means they’ve missed you or that they’re sorry. Butter means they’re glad to see you. Butter means they want to kill you, just a little, but make it worth every shaved instant of life.
from Jason Sheehan's Ode to Butter: Butter Means They Love You
