Quote of the Day
Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure - that of being Salvador Dali.
If I had a Salvador Dali painting, I would cuddle it to sleep.
Surrealism - in particular with Salvador Dali - was all about ego. It was all about extreme individualism.
Last year I went fishing with Salvador Dali. He was using a dotted line. He caught every other fish.
All of my heroes, like Dali, are people who pioneered various forms of cinema.
I like Dali and Magritte. I also like the Scottish artist John Byrne, another surrealist.
It's Frank's painting on the cover. We were originally going to use a Salvador Dali painting that we got permission from Salvador Dali to use, and Frank found this one, and it really did fit the music much more.
I did this movie about Salvador Dali a few years ago and had hair extensions and a little bob. That was incredibly bizarre.
If I'm doing a logo, I'll do it in black and white. Once the form is feeling right, only then do I start exploring the color palettes. A good example was the process of rebranding the Salvador Dali Museum. I did at least 100 versions in black and white.
Dali is like a man who hesitates between talent and genius, or, as one might once have said, between vice and virtue.
Art is about imagination. When you look at a picture from Salvador Dali, that's about imagination. When you look at Picasso, that's about imagination. Doing stuff from your heart.

John le Carre
But Walt and him shared the same kind of optimism. Walt believed in himself, and he was optimistic about what he wanted to do. He just knew it will be okay, and Dali was the same way. They had a great deal in common that way.
I used to hang out with Salvador Dali a lot. He was such a nice man. I really liked his wife Gala, too. People say that she was tricky, but she was never difficult with me.
Dali was the great painter then and surrealism was a way of life.
Dali had a good sense of humor - obviously you could tell just looking at him; he was funny.
I will be brief. Not nearly so brief as Salvador Dali, who gave the world's shortest speech. He said I will be so brief I have already finished, and he sat down.
From 17 to 21, I was obsessed by sport and art. In art, I loved the pre-Raphaelites and Rembrandt first. Then I discovered Salvador Dali, and it was like finding something I already knew.
