"It’s a mistake to assume about any of my work that it’s my own voice. Because that would be the most simple-minded ineffective art that you can make. That would really be talking down to people, and if I had such a burning need to express my opinions or whatever then I don’t think art would be where I’d want to do it. It’s not a good area for that."

- Raymond Pettibon
