"The definition of being a modern person is to examine yourself, to reflect on yourself and to be a self-knowledgeable person."
"Suffering and beauty are not antithetical, but actually complementary. It isn’t about morbidity. It’s actually a cultural mindset that is predisposed to aestheticizing even pain and suffering. It’s not seen as decadent. It’s just about a duality of things."
