King consciously steered away from legal claims and instead relied on civil disobedience.
I’m not pretty. The truth is I didn’t think I could be a model at all. I was looking at some of the guys on the walls at Irene Marie and I thought to myself ‘Jesus Christ. I can’t do this. I don’t look anything like these guys’.
Life is not an easy matter… You cannot live through it without falling into frustration and cynicism unless you have before you a great idea which raises you above personal misery, above weakness, above all kinds of perfidy and baseness.

Technology without hatred can be a blessing. Technology with hatred is always a disaster.
Great effort is required to arrest decay and restore vigor. One must exercise proper deliberation, plan carefully before making a move, and be alert in guarding against relapse following a renaissance.
Ignorance and bungling with love are better than wisdom and skill without.
If we’re destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff, there’s got to be a very powerful energy to fight that. I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that.

If the Frieze Art Fair catches on, I imagine at least two great things happening. First, we will once again have a huge art fair in town that isn’t too annoying to go to. More importantly, Frieze may finally show New Yorkers that we can cross our own waters for visual culture. That would change everything.

I am just at that stage of wondering where I go from here. I came into this business almost by accident, but now it has become serious.

Racism cannot be cured solely by attacking some of the results it produces, like discrimination in housing or in education.
