They have combined with the abstractness of institutional art teaching to produce a fine-arts culture given over to information and not experience.

Failure to answer that question affirmatively may leave us with a hell right here on earth.” ~ Jesse Jackson
  58. “I think you’d have to be a pretty brave man to say “never go out of style,” but men’s suiting has been relatively stable for 100 years now.
