"Art is a habit-forming drug. That's all it is for the artist, for the collector, for anybody connected with it, art has absolutely no existence as voracity, as truth. People speak of it with great religious reverence, but don't see why it is to be so much revered. I'm afraid I'm agnostic when it comes to art. I don't believe in it with all the mystical trimmings. As a drug it's probably very useful for many people, very sedative, but as a religion it's not even as good as God."  - Marcel Duchamp
