"I try not to watch movies and television with too much sex and violence. They really harm your perspective." 
“How’s that?” 
“Those movies and shows give you false expectations. If you watch them too much, you expect that every beautiful woman is a few hours away from jumping in bed with you. And you expect that every time you bump into someone on the sidewalk, or have any sort of confrontation, you should be ready to fight. In reality, you should probably just apologize and try to enjoy the person’s company.”

"I’ve been quite fascinated by the relative insignificance of human existence, the shortness of life. We might as well be a letter in a word in a sentence on a page in a book in a library in a city in one country in this enormous universe! And that kind of fear and insignificance has kept me awake at night. I feel like it must be universal. Everybody must know that somewhere."

"Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible."

"The American police are involved in psychological warfare against those Americans who don’t frighten them with imposing papers and threats. It’s a Victorian police force; it peers out of musty windows and wants to inquire about everything, and can make crimes if the crimes don’t exist to its satisfaction. ‘Nine lines of crime, one of boredom,’ said Louis-Ferdinand Céline."

Where is Ai Weiwei?
It is, as I write, 37 days since Ai Weiwei disappeared, arrested by the Chinese police on 3 April in Beijing as he  was about to board a scheduled flight for Hong Kong. He has not been  seen or heard from since. He has not had access to a lawyer (Ai’s own  lawyer disappeared for five days following the artist’s arrest), and  despite persistent enquiries his family do not know where he is.
“What can they do to me? Nothing more than to banish,  kidnap or imprison me. Perhaps they could fabricate my disappearance  into thin air, but they don’t have any creativity or imagination, and  they lack both joy and the ability to fly,” he wrote on his blog in  November 2009, when he was already being harassed and having his bank  accounts investigated. CCTV cameras mounted by the authorities outside  his Beijing studio had monitored his comings and goings for years. He  even made a sculpture of one such camera, a replica carved from a single  piece of marble. “I believe,” the artist continued on his blog, “that  no matter what happens, nothing can prevent the historical process by  which society demands freedom and democracy.”
