I don’t trust those who need to understand things | Stanley Kubrick, 1998

Kubrick self-portrait, 1949

"There is far too much focus on understanding--on being understood. The defining characteristics
of those things--books, films, paintings, pieces of music--that I consider to be art were not things
 I understood, but things I felt, and felt very deeply. I was left--happily, I might add--altered and
 confused and amazed. I felt enthusiastic about what I had seen and what I now faced. I don't trust
 those who need to understand things. There is artistry and joy in not knowing.

Feel more. That was what I meant to say."
