11. "I'm used to the security of living behind my online profiles and the clip art advertisdements I create to define me. I can be whoever I want to be in that world. I can be funny, deep, pensive, eccentric. I can be the best version of myself. I can make all the right decisions. I can delete my flaws by pressing a button. In the real world anything can happen.

Any reporter who didn't see journalism as "morally indefensible" was either "too stupid" or "too full of himself," she wrote. I disagreed. Without shutting the door on the possibility that I was both stupid and full of myself, I'd never bought into the seduction and betrayal conceit.

They weren't talking to me because they liked me or because I impressed them; they were talking to me because they wanted the cover of Rolling Stone."
Author: Michael Hastings

Author: Michael Pollan
16. "There is no art without contemplation."
Author: Robert Henri
17. "Nothing right can be accomplished in art without enthusiasm."

Author: Samuel West

Author: Vincent Price
20. "Although we read with our minds, the seat of artistic delight is between the shoulder blades. That little shiver behind is quite certainly the highest form of emotion that humanity has attained when evolving pure art and pure science. Let us worship the spine and its tingle."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov

Author: Wassily Kandinsky
