    "They exist without permission. They are hated, hunted and persecuted. They live in quiet desperation amongst the filth. And yet they are capable of bringing entire civilisations to their knees.
    If you are dirty, insignificant and unloved then rats are the ultimate role model"

    The artist in: Wall and Piece, London 2005, p. 83
