- Hubert Selby, Jr.
"Being an artist doesnâ€™t take much, just everything you got. Which means, of course, that as the process is giving you life, it is also bringing you closer to death. But itâ€™s no big deal. They are one in the same and cannot be avoided or denied. So when I totally embrace this process, this life/death, and abandon myself to it, I transcend all this meaningless gibberish and hang out with the gods. It seems to me that that is worth the price of admission."
