"Much has been said about Robert, and more will be added. Young men will adopt his gait. Young girls will wear white and mour his curls. He will be condemned and adored. His excesses demned and romanticized. In the end, truth will be found in his work, the corpereal body of the artist. It will not fall away. Man cannot judge it. For art sings of God, and ultimately belongs to him." -Patti Smith, "Just Kids"
