I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast; for I intend to go in harm's way
~ John Paul Jones (July 06, 1747 - July 18, 1792)
The aim of all commentary on art now should be to make works of art / and, by analogy, our own experience / more, rather than less, real to us. The function of criticism should be to show how it is what it is, even that it is what it is, rather than to show what it means.
~ Susan Sontag (January 16, 1933 - December 28, 2004)
