― David Gordon, White Tiger on Snow Mountain

“Anyway, that’s all art school is. A big clusterfuck for rich poseurs. Who the fuck needs it? But it’s a system, right? You have to go to the art schools to get into the galleries, to learn how to talk that bullshit. That’s what they’re learning, to talk bullshit.

David Gordon”
― David Gordon, The Serialist

One Final Bonus – David Gordon Quote 

“Everything you know and dream of is nothing, not even a speck of what is. The life of even the tiniest ant is as infinitely complex as a man’s and the life of a man is like a god’s. And even this vast whole is enclosed in my endlessness like the faintest glimmer of the first thought on the dawn of the first day of creation. Everything is still possible. You have not yet begun to live.”
― David Gordon, White Tiger on Snow Mountain
