THE WISDOM OF ... Lou Reed

Ren Guang-yi and Lou Reed

I don't think I'm in any position to call myself a martial artist. I'm a student of the martial arts.

People think that I work out but it's all t'ai chi.

I always thought martial arts was the most modern choreography we could have right now, and I always wanted to put it to music.

I think that everything happens for a reason, everything happens when it's going to happen.

I think life is far too short to concentrate on your past. I rather look into the future.

I don't believe in dressing up reality. I don't believe in using makeup to make things look smoother.

There's a bit of magic in everything, and some loss to even things out.

These are really terribly rough times, and we really should try to be as nice to each other as possible.

I'm in this business for too long to be halfhearted about anything.

How can anybody learn anything from an artwork when the piece of art only reflects the vanity of the artist and not reality?

I think it's pretentious to create art just for the sake of stroking the artists ego.
