  49. “Japan had a more radical experience of future shock than any other nation in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries. They were this feudal place, locked in the past, but then they bought the whole Industrial Revolution kit from England, blew their cultural brains out with it, became the first industrialized Asian nation, tried to take over their side of the world, got nuked by the United States for their trouble, and discovered Steve McQueen! Their take on iconic menswear emerges from that matrix.” ~ William Gibson
  50. “Let’s take Southeast Asia. The last 20, 30 years has been what’s called the “Asian Miracle” – fast economic growth, industrial society. It’s happening all over, with one exception, which one?

  56. “When I do an Asian character or an Asian voice I’m doing one because that’s my heritage and my family and where I come from. My family is of Korean descent and specifically North Korean descent. So it makes sense for me to talk about that issue because it’s the only weapon I have to somehow avenge my family and my history.” ~ Margaret Cho
  57. “I’m very much involved with Asian art and its theory and practice, mainly Chinese because that was quite sophisticated. I tend to look at that more than I look the Western.” ~ Brice Marden
  58. “Now all the myths that you have heard and that resonate with you, those are the elements from round about that you are building into a form in your life. The thing worth considering is how they relate to each other in your context, not how they relate to something out there-how they were relevant on the North American prairies or in the Asian jungles hundreds of years agon, but how they are relevant now-unless by contemplating their former meaning you can begin to amplify your own understanding of the role they play in your life.” ~ Joseph Campbell
