Andy Warhol quotes page 1

1928 - 1987, American artist

Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just
say, "So what." That's one of my favorite things to say. "So what." "My mother didn't love
me." So what. "My husband won't ball me." So what. "I'm a success but I'm still alone." So
what. I don't know how I made it through all the years before I learned how to do that trick.
It took a long time for me to learn it, but once you do, you never forget.
Andy Warhol

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.
Andy Warhol

It's not what you are that counts, it's what they think you are.
Andy Warhol

You have to do stuff that average people don't understand because those are the only good
things.
Andy Warhol

It's the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were
invented. They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and
how to look how you feel about it.
Andy Warhol

People should fall in love with their eyes closed.
Andy Warhol

I don't see anything wrong with being alone, it feels great to me. People make a big thing
about personal love. It doesn't have to be such a big thing. The same for living - people make
a big thing about that too. But personal living and personal loving are the two things the
Eastern-type wise men don't think about.
Andy Warhol

Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.
Andy Warhol

Being born is like being kidnapped. And then sold into slavery.
Andy Warhol

Since people are going to be living longer and getting older, they'll just have to learn how to
be babies longer.
Andy Warhol

People need to be made more aware of the need to work at learning how to live because life
is so quick and sometimes it goes away too quickly.
Andy Warhol

In the future, everybody will be world-famous for fifteen minutes.
Andy Warhol

Art is what you can get away with.
Andy Warhol

I think it would be very glamorous to be reincarnated as a great big ring on Liz Taylor's finger.
Andy Warhol

When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they
die before they get around to it. You can't make them change if they don't want to, just like
when they do want to, you can't stop them.
Andy Warhol

The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting.
Andy Warhol

Beauty is a sign of intelligence.
Andy Warhol

What's great about this country is America started the tradition where the richest consumers
buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola,
and you can know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you
can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke
than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes
are good.
Andy Warhol

After being alive, the next hardest work is having sex. Of course, for some people it isn't work
because they need the exercise and they've got the energy for the sex and the sex gives
them even more energy. Some people get energy from sex and some people lose energy from
sex. I have found that it's too much work. But if you have the time for it, and if you need
that exercise - then you should do it.
Andy Warhol

Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad,
whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.
Andy Warhol

I have Social Disease. I have to go out every night. If I stay home one night I start spreading
rumours to my dogs.
Andy Warhol

Fantasy love is better than reality love. Never doing it is very exciting. The most exciting
attractions are between two opposites that never meet.
Andy Warhol

During the 1960s, I think, people forgot what emotions were supposed to be. And I don't
think they've ever remembered.
Andy Warhol

Employees make the best dates. You don't have to pick them up and they're always tax-
deductible.
Andy Warhol

I've never met a person I couldn't call a beauty.
Andy Warhol

Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?
Andy Warhol

I like to be the right thing in the wrong place and the wrong thing in the right place. Being
the right thing in the wrong place and the wrong thing in the right place is worth it because
something interesting always happens.
Andy Warhol

They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
Andy Warhol

Employees make the best dates. You don't have to pick them up and they're always
tax-deductible.
Andy Warhol

I love Los Angeles. I love Hollywood. They're beautiful. Everybody's plastic, but I love plastic.
I want to be plastic.
Andy Warhol
