Caricature Quotations

When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.
Ernest Hemingway

It was one of the first professions that was deeply concerned with these issues and that had an intellectual response to them.
Rem Koolhaas

Walt Disney

Anorexia is a response to cultural images of the female body - waiflike, angular - that both capitulates to the ideal and also mocks it, strips away all the ancillary signs of sexuality, strips away breasts and hips and butt and leaves in their place a garish caricature, a cruel cartoon of flesh and bone.
Caroline Knapp

Lena Dunham
