Building a Steak of Creativity.
David Bielander

quoted on a page with a slug:
'...and Sam tore the glove off, squealing, as four fingers fell to the deck and danced 
like half a pound of live prawns.'
Tim Winton, Cloudstreet

'Naturalness is, as Oscar Wilde once remarked, the complexest 
of poses. One might generalize this to add that all appearance is a product.'
Pravu Mazumdar, A Theatre of Appearances
I like all appearance as a product.

'I am very happy that no piece really allows itself to be thoroughly thought through. Never.' pg.27

some things i've looked up as a result of this booklet:
Moire (click particularly)
'This shimmer, that you can't sort out or arrange, is what I want.' pg.25
Oscar Wilde Quotes on appearance
found the actual thing :To be natural is such a very difficult pose to keep up.
and also:
“Looking good and dressing well is a necessity. Having a purpose in life is not.”
“Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.”

“I have yet to meet a man as fond of high moral conduct as he is of outward appearances”

“What we want is not freedom but its appearances. It is for these simulacra that man has always striven. And since freedom, as has been said, is no more than a sensation, what difference is there between being free and believing ourselves free?”
Emile M. Cioran

“Keep looking below surface appearances. Don't shrink from doing so just because you might not like what you find.”
Colin Powell

(the last two/three) vs.
“It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.”
Oscar Wilde

I should hand-write and scan more posts. the font and spacing are not what i want.
