"In the paintings where it's there—the tenderness—I work for it. I'm not afraid of it. If I could put my bleeding heart in there, I would."
"Recapping the last forty years of my own life—beginning with 1968 and ending with 2008, and all those amazing and horrific things, assassinations, brutal acts— has implications and great significance for all of us. Now, part of that can be closed for me."
