Character, like a photograph, develops in darkness.
When you give rise to that which is within you, what you have will save you. If you do not give rise to it, what you do not have will destroy you.

It’s not what enters men’s mouths that’s evil. It’s what comes out of their mouths that is.

Some would say that we’ve crossed the threshold of photos being too abundant," says Jurgenson, who’s now a researcher at Snapchat. "[Years ago] if you saw someone taking a photo you’d stop and say ‘That must be important.’ Now, you convey respect and importance by not taking a photo.
To get a “true” photo, you need to remove artifice. This means removing art. Art’s opposite is bulk surveillance. Drones, CCTV, ultra-fast-ultra-high-res DSLR, our fingers stroking our iPhones or tapping at Google Glass. Omnipresent cameras suction up reality without curation. We’re at the finest time in history to see stars, or anyone, photographed looking like hell.
