Style is the answer to everything.

    A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing

    To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it

    To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art
    Bullfighting can be an art

    Boxing can be an art

    Loving can be an art

    Opening a can of sardines can be an art
    Not many have style

    Not many can keep style

    I have seen dogs with more style than men,

    although not many dogs have style.

    Cats have it with abundance.
    When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun,

    that was style.

    Or sometimes people give you style

    Joan of Arc had style

    John the Baptist

    Jesus

    Socrates

    Caesar

    García Lorca.
    I have met men in jail with style.

    I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.

    Style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.

    Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,

    or you, naked, walking out of the bathroom without seeing me.
Charles Bukowski
