"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"The quintessential, ‘real’ beginning for me was when I came to UCLA or when I came to California. I didn’t come for its scenic beauty; I came for the artists who were teaching at UCLA. The art they were making was exactly the art that I liked, and it was a great bonus that they were also actually teaching."
