“He (Jodorowsky) underlined his commitment to do violence to the spectator by claiming that spectatorship is ‘the lowest category of the spirit;’ and that a spectator is a person ‘who does not participate in existence but who believes or wants to know it without abandoning his armchair.’” - essay Pull The Trigger, from Book Aesthetics of Risk - pg 229
“The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.”
— Henry David Thoreau
"If self-care is truly an act of political warfare, it must equitable and accessible. Women, especially those who are the most vulnerable and at-risk among us, must practice self-care as a political act of love; it must be rooted in community building and not in the maintenance of existing capitalistic enterprises that perpetuate inequalities in our communities."
