Ngaio Marsh
“Above all things -- read. Read the great stylists who cannot be copied rather than the successful writers who must not be copied.”
Ngaio Marsh, Death on the Air and Other Stories

J. Kenner
“—except for the fact that your scars mean you’ve been hurting, I am one-hundred-percent cool with having them in the painting. Some models, especially the professional ones, it’s like painting air-brushed people. Give me something raw any day.”
J. Kenner, Release Me

“She'd lost two more pounds. A picture of the models she'd cut out of the magazine flashed through Kessa's mind. And the winner is... seventy-three!”
Steven Levenkron, The Best Little Girl in the World

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

“IF YOU WANT TO CREATE A CHANGE, you must challenge not only the models of Unreality, but the paradigms that underwrite them.”
Stafford Beer

“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

Mark Manson
“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

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

“[...] 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

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

“Nowadays, nobody can teach you a useful thing about life, since models are outdated one moment after.”
Marino Baccarini

Alice Walker
“The absence of models, in literature as in life, to say nothing of painting, is an occupational hazard for the artist, simply because models in art, in behavior, in growth of spirit and intellect--even if rejected--enrich and enlarge one's view of existence. Deadlier still, to the artist who lacks models, is the curse of ridicule, the bringing to bear on an artist's best work, especially his or her most original, most strikingly deviant, only a fund of ignorance and the presumption that as an artist's critic one's judgement is free of the restrictions imposed by prejudice, and is well informed, indeed, about all the art in the world that really matters.”
Alice Walker

“The child accepts role models of parental behavior unconsciously and without thinking”
Sunday Adelaja

“When a child is immersed in a certain environment, his thinking is formed by roles models of behavior demonstrated by parents in the family who have had a great influence on the formation of thinking of the child”
Sunday Adelaja

“If we do the RIGHT thing at the WRONG time we will be frustrated. If we do the WRONG thing at the RIGHT time we will fail miserably. When we DO the RIGHT thing at the RIGHT time we will become the models for others”
Sesan Kareem

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

“Beauty is boundless in nature, thus it holds no definitive form.”
Wayne Chirisa

“Nothing is more charming than style and confidence.”
Wayne Chirisa

Herbert A. Simon
“We have adopted the policy of Sorel of propaganda of the deed. The best rhetoric comes from building and testing models and running experiments. Let philosophers weave webs of words; such webs break easily.”
Herbert A. Simon, Models of My Life

“The darker the skin, the whiter seem yellow teeth.”

Brandon Villasenor
“Theres a metaphor beyond the fallen paradise in the circumstance most intellectuals find themselves in the maze they tried every waking second trying to escape. For a poet, deranged and in love with plants and planets, there is no time for thinking so let us scream truth beyond the fall all over again. Internally rising if impossible to have full faith in, the flow could crash us back into disappearance.”
Brandon Villasenor, Prima Materia

Brandon Villasenor
“Or, so I thought it could all make sense if I felt it all the way through, no matter which direction or sense of purpose. What started me on this insane path to begin with? Women, death or luck; perhaps all three
I knew that much, this nuke dream filled with silver wet screens. California was on fire, my heart was racing and I thought it was still about to make sense at any moment until I was a tidal wave of matrix information approaching the beach I stood upon.”
Brandon Villasenor, Prima Materia

“Better than a thousand machine learning models, is one Data Scientist that brings value to the organization.”
Damian Mingle
