Silk Quotations

You cannot make a revolution with silk gloves.
Joseph Stalin

I'm for mechanical art. When I took up silk screening, it was to more fully exploit the preconceived image through the commercial techniques of multiple reproduction.
Andy Warhol

We are Jesus Christ's; we belong to him. But even more, we are increasingly him. He moves in and commandeers our hands and feet, requisitions our minds and tongues. We sense his rearranging: debris into the divine, pig's ear into silk purse. He repurposes bad decisions and squalid choices. Little by little, a new image emerges.
Max Lucado

I have a love-hate relationship with white silk.
Alan Rickman

Elegance is always in style for men. There are all different kinds of elegance. It can be silk, it can be a T-shirt.
