“I have this idea of a quiet front that exists inside me and in everyone, it is the front of which you make a stand against mediocrity, against mindless consumption, against bad ideas and conformity because these things are an assault against your personal and creative freedom.
How do you fight on this front? You fight on it by going through life with your eyes open. You fight on it by reading good books and watching great films. You fight on it by celebrating beauty and strangeness. You fight on it by staying out and dancing all night. You fight on it by holding ideas up to the light. You fight on it by creating things. You fight on it by associating yourself with misfits, artists and wanderers. You fight on it by exercising your freedom of expression.”
