Don Lee Quotes.

1. "From personal experience, Kenzo knew about the state of racial equality in America. It was sound in theory, but not in practice. It was a glorious dream, but just a dream. It would never work. It had never worked--not anywhere, not anytime in history--and the US was the only country foolish and hypocritical enough to try."
- Quote by Don Lee

2. "Yes, he was depressed–obviously. But this was not something new or atypical for him. Aristotle called it melancholia, the predisposition artists have for depression, prone as they are to being morose and antisocial and self-flagellating and megalomaniacal. Indeed, without that inclination, no one would probably become an artist in the first place."
- Quote by Don Lee

3. "How well do we really know anyone? We only know what people are willing to reveal."

4. "It’s not that people change. People don’t change. They merely hide things from you, and lie."
- Quote by Don Lee

7. "It was such a dismal time in Japan. It almost seemed as if they were dying as a people, their economy in tatters, the population dwindling, the remaining citizens isolated and adrift. Had they been wrong about everything? Kenzo wondered. The power of consensus and obligation, the imperatives of racial purity and harmony?"
- Quote by Don Lee

8. "Despite your best efforts and intentions, there’s a limited reservoir to fellowship before you begin to rely solely on the vapors of nostalgia."
- Quote by Don Lee

9. "I mean, what happened to developing the individual, to encouraging subversion and independence? I thought that’s what this place was all about. Instead, it’s, you know, just the old bourgeois concept of togetherness–i.e., conformity–under the guise of PC liberalism. It’s fucking oppressive, man. It’s downright totalitarian."
- Quote by Don Lee

10. "I knew it. You’re a romantic. God, I’m going to have to look after you, Eric, make a special project of you the next four years, because if you take that shit out into the world, that kind of fucking idealism, you’ll get slaughtered. You’ll get creamed. It’ll be the death of you."
