„My equestrian figures are symbols of the anguish that I feel when I survey contemporary events. Little by little, my horses become more restless; their riders less and less able to control them. Man and beast are both overcome by a catastrophe similar to those that struck Sodom and Pompeii. So I am trying to illustrate the last stages of the disintegration of a myth, I mean the myth of the individual victorious hero, the 'uono di virtù' of the humanists..“

„Dream is personalized myth, myth is depersonalized dream; both myth and dream are symbolic“

—  Joseph Campbell, libro The Hero with a Thousand Faces

Origine: The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), Chapter 1
Contesto: Dream is personalized myth, myth is depersonalized dream; both myth and dream are symbolic in the same general way of the dynamics of the psyche. But in the dream the forms are quirked by the peculiar troubles of the dreamer, whereas in myth the problem and solutions shown are directly valid for all mankind.

„My fame had become annoying for my enemies, and a little trying, I confess, for my friends.“

—  Sarah Bernhardt French actress 1844 - 1923

Origine: My Double Life (1907), Ch. 25
Contesto: My fame had become annoying for my enemies, and a little trying, I confess, for my friends. But at that time all this stir and noise amused me vastly. I did nothing to attract attention. My somewhat fantastic tastes, my paleness and thinness, my peculiar way of dressing, my scorn of fashion, my general freedom in all respects, made me a being quite apart from all others. I did not recognise the fact.
I did not read, I never read, the newspapers. So I did not know what was said about me, either favourable or unfavourable. Surrounded by a court of adorers of both sexes, I lived in a sunny dream.

„I used to get called a horse face. And so I decided to embrace the horse and make it my spirit animal…And now…the horse is a huge part of my symbolism.“

—  Alaska Thunderfuck 5000 American Drag queen 1985

Advocate interview (2015)
Contesto: I used to get called a horse face. And so I decided to embrace the horse and make it my spirit animal…And now…the horse is a huge part of my symbolism. I gain a lot of power and strength from the horse.
