All these things are offshoots of words… Words are the most important part, and if they don’t mean a lot, I have a hard time with the rest of it.
— Laurie Anderson, 1983
“Just do your work. And if the world needs your work it will come and get you. And if it doesn’t, do your work anyway. You can have fantasies about having control over the world, but I know I can barely control my kitchen sink. That is the grace I’m given. Because when one can control things, one is limited to one’s own vision.” — Kiki Smith
