Andy Warhol quotes page 2

People sometimes say that the way things happen in the movies is unreal, but actually, it's
the way things happen to you in life that's unreal. The movies make emotions look strong and
real, whereas when things really do happen to you, it's like you're watching television - you
don't feel anything.
Andy Warhol

Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets.
Andy Warhol

I'm afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning.
Andy Warhol

When I look at things, I always see the space they occupy. I always want the space to
reappear, to make a comeback, because it's lost space when there's something in it. If I see
a chair in a beautiful space, no matter how beautiful the chair is, it can never be as beautiful
to me as the plain space.
Andy Warhol

As soon as you stop wanting something you get it.
Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol

Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.
Andy Warhol

The most beautiful thing in Tokyo is McDonald's. The most beautiful thing in Stockholm is
McDonald's. The most beautiful thing in Florence is McDonald's. Peking and Moscow don't
have anything beautiful yet.
Andy Warhol

I'd asked around 10 or 15 people for suggestions. Finally one lady friend asked the right
question, "Well, what do you love most?" That's how I started painting money.
Andy Warhol

When I got my first television set, I stopped caring so much about having close relationships.
Andy Warhol

I always thought I'd like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph, and no name. Well,
actually, I'd like it to say "figment."
Andy Warhol
