“Man doth usurp all space,
Stares thee, in rock, bush, river, in the face.
Never thine eyes behold a tree;
'Tis no sea thou seest in the sea,
'Tis but a disguised humanity.
To avoid thy fellow, vain thy plan;
All that interests man, is man.”
Henry Sutton

“But they do," he said. "That is the distressing part. They do. The quality--the intellectual or artistic quality--of the films is almost irrelevant. The crucial thing is only the degree to which they can identify, the degree to which they can project and see themselves as they would like to be. If they can do those things they can believe the picture, and if they can believe in it, then it is a good picture.”
Henry Sutton, The Exhibitionist

“The mind," he said, intruding on and descanting upon her thoughts, "is the least commonly acknowledged erogenous zone.”
Henry Sutton, The Exhibitionist
