Excerpt from the book
“There is no “way.” There is no “right” or “wrong.” It’s all about the way we have been shaped by the literature, movies, paintings, music, and anything else you can name that has influenced your attitude. Different people look at different things and say, “That’s lovely,” or “This is garbage.” You’ll never be able to get any three people to agree on anything in terms of validating art.”
