"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"I’m a secular person. I don’t believe in any kind of mystical mumbo-jumbo. For me and for a number of artists today, science really functions as our world view. I don’t see that as terribly different from the way artists used the Church in the past. Our relationship to science is very much like the Renaissance artists’ relationship to theology."
