I love the English language just like I love all American things.

Most of all, I have developed listening as an art form. -- Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000081093
Now and then, someone would accuse me of being evil - of letting people destroy themselves while I watched, just so I could film them and tape-record them. But I didn't think of myself as evil - just realistic. -- Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000153329
Whenever I'm interested in something, I know the timing's off, because I'm always interested in the right thing at the wrong time. I should just be getting interested after I'm not interested any more. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000166114

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000209472
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
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000218345
I think every painting should be the same size and the same color so they're all interchangeable and nobody thinks they have a better painting or a worse painting ... Besides even when the subject is different, people want the same painting. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000227826
Since I was shot, everything is such a dream to me. Like I don't know whether I'm alive or whether I died. I wasn't afraid before. And having been dead once, I shouldn't feel fear. But I am afraid. I don't understand why. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000239352

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000242394

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000264039
In some circles where very heavy people think they have very heavy brains, words like "charming" and "clever" and "pretty" are all put-downs; all the lighter things in life, which are the most important things, are put down. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000266422

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000390936
The moment you label something, you take a step-I mean, you can never go back again to seeing it unlabelled. -- Andy Warhol

I love going out every night. It's so exciting. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000408184
I was trying to think the other day about what you do now in America if you want to be successful. Before, you were dependable and wore a good suit. Looking around, I guess that today you have to do all the same things but not wear a good suit. I guess that's all it is. Think rich. Look poor. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000413698

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000445482
I get so tired of painting. I've been trying to give it up all the time, if we could just make a living out of movies or the newspaper business or something. It's so boring, painting the same picture over and over. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000456423

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000463167
Free countries are great, because you can actually sit in somebody else's space for a while and pretend you're a part of it. You can sit in the Plaza Hotel and you don't even have to live there. You can just sit and watch the people go by. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000463354
I admit to having worn suede and leather pants myself for a while, but you just never feel clean, and it's degenerate, anyway, to wear animal skins ... So I went back to bluejeans after my degenerate period. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000464697
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

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000499321
Everyone winds up kissing the wrong person goodnight. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000505807

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000512208

You meet rich people and you hang around with them, and one night they've had a few drinks and they say 'I'll buy it!' Then they tell their friends, 'You must have this person's work, darling,' and that's all you need. That's all it takes. Get it? -- Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000587084
The pop artists did images that anybody walking down Broadway could recognize in a split second - comics, picnic tables, men's trousers, celebrities, shower curtains, refrigerators, Coke bottles. All the great modern things that the Abstract Expressionists tried not to notice at all. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000594572
I believe in low lights and trick mirrors. -- Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000637512

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000695534
My instinct about painting says, 'if you don't think about it, it's right.' As soon as you have to decide and choose, it's wrong. And the more you decide about, the more wrong it gets. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000704645
Making money is art. And working is art. And good business is the best art. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000716756
Those who talk about individuality the most are the ones who most object to deviation, and in a few years it may be the other way around. Some day everybody will just think what they want to think, and then everybody will probably be thinking alike; that seems to be what is happening. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000725007

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000759583

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000764208

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000770730
The clothes of Courreges are so nice. -- Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000775497
Everything is more glamorous when you do it in bed anyway. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000776591

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000827402
It must be hard to be a model, because you'd want to be like the photograph of you, and you can't ever look that way. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000846150
I think it would be great to make a $2 million or $3 million art movie where nobody would really have to go to it. I thought that would be a good project to work on ... do something really artistic. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000848717
Everybody must have a fantasy. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000849288
I'll bet there are a lot of artists that nobody hears about who just make more money than anybody. The people that do all the sculptures and paintings for big building construction. We never hear about them, but they make more money than anybody. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000861441
Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000863676

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000872395
When I did my self-portrait, I left all the pimples out because you always should. Pimples are a temporary condition and they don't have anything to do with what you really look like. Always omit the blemishes - they're not part of the good picture you want. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000877788
Sometimes something can look beautiful just because it's different in some way from the other things around it. One red petunia in a window box will look very beautiful if all the rest of them are white, and vice-versa. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000880116
My style was always to spread out rather than to move up. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000881296
Fantasy love is much better than reality love. Never doing it is very exciting. The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000882158
I've been invited to the White House about five times. I think the greatest thing would be if they actually invited everybody to the White House every night ... they'd just take about 500 people a night. Everybody would just love this country because it's so thrilling to go there. It really is. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000883009
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

B kissed Damian. Two people kissing always look like fish. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000906260

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000960502
And the fascination I experienced was probably very close to a certain kind of love. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000966720
Space is all one space and thought is all one thought, but my mind divides its spaces into spaces into spaces and thoughts into thoughts into thoughts. Like a large condominium. Occasionally I think about the one Space and the one Thought, but usually I don't. Usually I think about my condominium. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 000968946
If everybody's not a beauty, then nobody is -- Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001018310
Good business is the best art of all. -- Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001027035
Nutty people are always writing me. I always think I must be on some nutty mailing list. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001034259

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001037899
I'm the type who'd be happy not going anywhere as long as I was sure I knew exactly what was happening at the places I wasn't going to. I'm the type who'd like to sit home and watch every party that I'm invited to on a monitor in my bedroom. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001039506
You have to do stuff that average people don't understand because those are the only good things. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001039524
During the 1960s, I think, people forgot what emotions were supposed to be. And I don't think they've ever remembered. -- Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001118000
Beauty is a sign of intelligence. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001118488
That's the hard part of overdosing on cherries-you have all the pits to tell you exactly how many you ate. Not more or less. Exactly. One-seed fruits really bother me for that reason. That's why I'd always rather eat raisins than prunes. Prune pits are even more imposing than cherry pits. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001129605
Actually, I jade very quickly. Once is usually enough. Either once only, or every day. If you do something once it's exciting, and if you do it every day it's exciting. But if you do it, say, twice or just almost every day, it's not good any more. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001139441
I never met a pet I didn't like. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001146785
I am a deeply superficial person. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001151870

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001160651
Brigitte Bardot was one of the first women to be really modern and treat men like love objects, buying them and discarding them. I like that. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001162755
Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves? -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001165769
There are beautiful sounds in rock. Very lazy, dreamlike noises. You can forget about the lyrics in most songs. Just dig the noise, and you've got your sound ... We're musical primitives. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001167811
I'm afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001177290
When I think about what sort of person I would most like to have on a retainer, I think it would be a boss. A boss who could tell me what to do, because that makes everything easy when you're working. -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001195093

Day after day I look in the mirror and I still see something -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001239104

Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001253255
I remembered I had tickets that Susan Blond gave me to the rock kid who ate the heads off bats, Ozzy Osbourne,... -- Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol Quotes : pic 001259310
People are always so boring when they band together. You have to be alone to develop all the idiosyncrasies that make a person interesting. -- Andy Warhol
