“We must ‘keep up with things,’ of course…We must find out what we can about this place we’re living in – this place in time – but we’ve got to be awfully careful, it seems to me, never to make ourselves too perfectly a part of it.

Modishness is the sure sign of the second-rate. We’re finally to be judged not by the degree of our involvement in the mainstream, but by our individual response to it.”

Orson Welles, quoted in This is Orson Welles (photo by Ernest Bachrach, 1941)
