I’ve been called many names like perfectionist, difficult and obsessive. I think it takes obsession, takes searching for the details for any artist to be good.
I’ve never really had a hobby, unless you count art, which the IRS once told me I had to declare as a hobby since I hadn’t made money with it.
If a building becomes architecture, then it is art.
No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.
No heirloom of humankind captures the past as do art and language.
When women go wrong, men go right after them.
Whether women are better than men I cannot say – but I can say they are certainly no worse.
Why is it men are permitted to be obsessed about their work, but women are only permitted to be obsessed about men?

Women hear rhythm differently than men.
Women hold up half the sky.
I grew up in the Bronx where you would stay up late with your girlfriends, just being silly in our bedrooms, whatever. And I was always the clown.
A man who graduated high in his class at Yale Law School and made partnership in a top law firm would be celebrated. A man who invested wisely would be admired, but a woman who accomplishes this is treated with suspicion.
Ah, women. They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.
Men are allowed to have passion and commitment for their work… a woman is allowed that feeling for a man, but not her work.
Men are April when they woo, December when they wed. Maids are May when they are maids, but the sky changes when they are wives.
I’m not denyin’ the women are foolish. God Almighty made ’em to match the men.
I’m surrounded by very powerful women and very progressive men.
The house a woman creates is a Utopia. She can’t help it – can’t help trying to interest her nearest and dearest not in happiness itself but in the search for it.
You have got to discover you, what you do, and trust it.
I would rather trust a woman’s instinct than a man’s reason.
If we really want to be full and generous in spirit, we have no choice but to trust at some level.
In these times, God’s people must trust him for rest of body and soul.
It’s a delight to trust somebody so completely.
