"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."
"I think art is wonderful because it's everything you've ever known and everything you've ever done, somehow percolating up, working with ideas that you might want to explore. And then you can just wake up one morning and know what you want to do. The hissing of the heat."
- Maya Lin
