Edward Carpenter
“In the case of Michel Angelo we have an artist who with brush and chisel portrayed literally thousands of human forms; but with this peculiarity, that while scores and scores of his male figures are obviously suffused and inspired by a romantic sentiment, there is hardly one of his female figures that is so,—the latter being mostly representative of woman in her part as mother, or sufferer, or prophetess or poetess, or in old age, or in any aspect of strength or tenderness, except that which associates itself especially with romantic love. Yet the cleanliness and dignity of Michel Angelo's male figures are incontestable, and bear striking witness to that nobility of the sentiment in him, which we have already seen illustrated in his sonnets.”
Edward Carpenter, The Intermediate Sex: A Study of Some Transitional Types of Men and Women

“During the shoot in November 2003, I was vaguely aware of the stylist’s sulky demeanor and eye-rolling vibe, but I blocked her out. Some fashion people are snotty drama queens; this is not news. Whatever was going on with her, I was determined to be positive and not get infected by her energy. Later, Fiorella told me that the entire time I was in makeup, the stylist had been clomping up and down the hall, sputtering into her cell phone, “I can’t believe I have to style a FAT GIRL!”

Believe it, bitch. ”
Crystal Renn, Hungry: A Young Model's Story of Appetite, Ambition, and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves

“[...] a familiar art historical narrative [...] celebrates the triumph of the expressive individual over the collective, of innovation over tradition, and autonomy over interdependence. [...] In fact, a common trope within the modernist tradition of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries involved the attempt to reconstruct or recover the lost ideal of an art that is integrated with, rather than alienated from, the social. By and large, however, the dominant model of avant-garde art during the modern period assumes that shared or collective values and systems of meaning are necessarily repressive and incapable of generating new insight or grounding creative praxis.”
Grant H. Kester, The One and the Many: Contemporary Collaborative Art in a Global Context

Mie Hansson
“What differentiated us was our perception of our mutual reality, which made no difference.”
Mie Hansson, Where Pain Thrives

“There is a difference between putting on clothes and dressing well.”

Jean Lorrain
“And then I recalled those mysterious stories about the waxworkers of the middle ages and the public reprobation attached to their trade. Did they not live in cellars, in the eternal twilight propitious for enchantments and apparitions? Their visionary art (who, more than they, evoked a truer image of life?) was closely related to that of magicians: bewitchments were carried out with wax figures, witch trials are full of them, and one particular legend haunted me above all, that of the modeler from Anspach, who slowly squeezed the soul and the life out of his model in order to animate his painted waxwork and then, having finished his work of art, awaited nightfall to go and bury the corpse in the ditch at the city walls.”
Jean Lorrain

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Narcissism is as profitable to a model as scruffiness is to a homeless person.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“Natural beauty is mother nature's gift to the world.”
Wayne Chirisa

“We are all models; in piousness or impiousness and we all do possess our own strengths and weaknesses. Our weaknesses give purposeful people the reasons to be purposeful and purposeless people the reasons to stay in wander. If there be anything worth being worked on, it should be our weaknesses”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“There is difference between putting on clothes and dressing well.”
Wayne Chirisa

Jean Baudrillard
“it is with this same imperialism that present-day simulators attempt to make the real, all of the real, coincide with their models of simulation.”
Jean Baudrillard, Simulacra and Simulation

“A classical fashionable style is a prerogative to the fashion savvy.”
Wayne Chirisa

“Flawless hair is the beauty that complements imperfections not known to the naked eye.”
Wayne Chirisa

“Putting yourself in a position where you can be rejected, saying a joke that may not be funny, asserting an opinion that may offend others, joining a table of people you don’t know, telling a woman that you like her and want to date her. All of these things require you to stick your neck out on the line emotionally in some way. You’re making yourself vulnerable when you do them.

In this way, vulnerability represents a form of power, a deep and subtle form of power.”
Mark Manson
