Norman Rockwell
Quotations



"I unconsciously decided that, even if it wasn't an ideal world, it should be. So I painted only the ideal aspects of it-pictures in which there are no drunken slatterns or self-centered mothers - only foxy grandpas who played baseball with the kids and boys who fished from logs and got up circuses in the backyard. "

"I showed the America I knew and observed to others who might not have noticed."
 
"My fundamental purpose is to interpret the typical American. I guess I am a story teller."
 
"Commonplaces never become tiresome. It is we who become tired when we cease to be curious and appreciative."
