"If you want to really hurt your parents, and you don't have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts. I'm not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something." - Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

"Life doesn't imitate art, it imitates bad television." - Woody Allen

"While he plans his escape with Meredith Nicole, Mark Henderson talks about possibly making art in their East Vancouver studio. Apart from gasfluxer hell, life is pretty good." - Mark Henderson
