“When the work comes to a point, at that point should be freedom and not slavery. Most of us would rather be told what to do rather than to face freedom.  A perceived artwork that tells you what to think or how to act is not helpful to society,” 

 “It’s a service to do the most with your life that you can do in the world. The job of the artist is to give people something to see not to give them something to look at. You have to know the difference between looking and seeing.”
