"It's entirely up to you. And this just might be all you ever have to know." - The Universe
"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation." - Robert F. Kennedy
"In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few." - Shunryu Suzuk
"When you first see brand new work, the chances are, if it’s really significant, it will be uncomfortable to somebody like myself because I am so immersed in what painting, up until now, looked like. And with Basquiat, many art professionals had skepticism about what he was doing because the paintings didn’t necessarily fit their idea about museum painting, and yet, of course, that’s exactly what’s necessary in order to create the art of the future." - Ann Temkin (MoMA)
"Chance favors the connected mind." - Steven Johnson (after Pasteur)
