Whatever an artist's personal feelings are, as soon as an artist fills a certain area on the canvas or circumscribes it, he becomes historical. He acts from or upon other artists.
Willem de Kooning
Who among us has the strength to oppose petty egoism, those petty good feelings, pity and remorse?

Mary Manin Morrissey
I feel like all the songs are little scenes, different angles, of the feelings that come around something ending.

For me, it's sad to say, but I would probably have a spiritual marriage but not a legal marriage, because I think so much about marriage starts to become about finances.
