    "What is a work of art if not the gaze of another person? Not directed above us, nor beneath us, but at the same height as our own gaze. Art cannot be experienced collectively; nothing can; art is something you are alone with. You meet its gaze alone."
    -Karl Ove Knausgaard, My Struggle: Book 2
     
    "We tell ourselves stories in order to live."
    -Joan Didion, The White Album
