I believe in mysticism, with an interior goal, and you are your own temple and your own priest.

Religion is too old now; it's from another century, it's not for today.

There's a bizarre prejudice that exists in the New York publishing establishment that any work outside the tri-state area is being done by trained chimpanzees, that geography screens out sensibility.
