Jasper Johns, Painted Bronze, 1960.
“I was doing at that time sculptures of small objects — flashlights and light bulbs. Then I heard a story about Willem de Kooning. He was annoyed with my dealer, Leo Castelli for some reason, and said something like, ‘That son-of-a-bitch; you could give him two beer cans and he could sell them.’ I heard this and thought, ‘What a sculpture — two beer cans.’ It seemed to me to fit in perfectly with what I was doing, so I did them, and Leo sold them.” — Jasper Johns, quoted by Gene Swenson in  “What is Pop Art? Part II,” ARTnews 62, no.10 (February 1964)

"I think… if it is true that
there are as many minds as there
are heads, then there are as many
kinds of love as there are hearts."

"You will fall in love with someone who’s cold and always seemingly pushing you away. When all is said and done, they will be forever known as the one person you couldn’t get to love you. Unfortunately, it will hurt and sting worse than the good ones, the ones that chopped up your meat for you and picked out an eyelash from your eye and were nice to your mother, because love often feels like a game we need to win. And when we lose, when we realize we couldn’t get what we ultimately desired from a person, it makes us feel like a failure and erases all the memories of those who loved us in the past."
