“But it all comes down to one thing: Your own reaction is the one that counts. There is no single right answer… So let’s go.”

Art of Quotation

“But it all comes down to one thing: Your own reaction is the one that counts. There is no single right answer. Your response is essential, and it can’t be faked. There is no value in mouthing the conventional wisdom, or in taking the word of an esteemed critic as gospel and convincing yourself that you agree. Identifying your own reaction, in its emotional and intellectual and spiritual dimensions, is the whole point of the enterprise.

You, a person with a genuine interest in art and an open mind, are fully equipped.

You don’t need anything else, really. So let’s go.”

Daniel McDermon, journalist, writer
