Life of Moravia

"It doesn't proceed via the head; it occurs through successive illuminations. The artist is always assisted by a demon, and it is this demon that illuminates him... What is illumination? I'll come to a perhaps more interesting point, which is entirely mine, because no one else would say it. Illumination is this: a rational operation of dizzying speed. If you have a fan at home, and you turn it on, at a certain point you won't see the blades anymore, you'll see something like a blur. Now, illumination in reality is a fantastic acceleration of rationality." ~ Alberto Moravia

Nobody cares about men’s fashion Australian TV host Karl Stefanovic wore the same blue suit for a year and nobody noticed. He did this to highlight double standards in support of his female co-host after harsh criticism of her outfits. "I'm judged on my interviews, my appalling sense of humour – on how I do my job, basically. Whereas women are quite often judged on what they're wearing or how their hair is," he observed.
