William Kingdon Clifford

The teachings of the New Testament are the most valuable guide to the best way to a civil and sustainable society the world has seen.
I still got a lot to learn about fashion. I'm somebody who experiments, somebody who's finding their way. I'm young, and I don't really know if there's any guide to style in what's right and what's wrong. I just dress as an extension of how I'm feeling. If I feel crazy, then I'm gonna rock something crazy.

Ian Hamilton Finlay

William T. Vollmann
