Ponder This:

Only the individual taste, in the end, can truly create style or fashion, since it is not concerned with following in the wake of others.  Hence, whatever an individual taste may choose, be it a stepladder or a wicker basket, it must always be based on deep personal choice, a spiritual need that truly assesses and gives value to that particular ladder or basket.  The beauty of these things is somehow transmitted through the personality of the one who chooses.  It is in our selection, after all, that we betray our deepest selves, and the individualist can make us see the objects of his choice with new eyes, with his eyes.
