"Until talking with her that day, I never though about how hard it must be to make images in a world so full to bursting with images. I had only felt sorry for myself and my writer friends, that we have to make words for a culture that loves its images best. So I had not before considered what questions and dilemmas an artist might have about which images to add to the world."

— Sheila Heti, "Shary Boyle"
