Reality is
a pitfall best imagined
as a memory

the way we see it

then buy LSD

Beauty is not some
great moral idea . . . It is
eternal decay

***************

Art is composed of
style, fashion and money
jumbled together

***************

The human body
is a fraud both inside and
outside . . . Pity it

Reality is
a difficult prostitute
and we are its pimps

Cinema is a
secret kiss between painting
and literature
