Andy Warhol
Quotations



"When I have to think about it, I know the picture is wrong. ... My instinct about painting says, "If you don't think about it, it's right." As soon as you have to decide and choose, it's wrong."

"An artist is someone who produces things that people don't need to have but that he - for some reason - thinks it would be a good idea to give them."
 
"They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself."
 
"Buying is much more American than thinking, and I'm as American as they come."
 
"I'd prefer to remain a mystery. I never like to give my background and, anyway, I make it all up different every time I'm asked. It's not just that it's part of my image not to tell everything, it's just that I forget what I said the day before, and I have to make it all up over again."
 
"When I have to think about it, I know the picture is wrong. ... My instinct about painting says, "If you don't think about it, it's right." As soon as you have to decide and choose, it's wrong."
