They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

I never understood why when you died, you didn’t just vanish, everything could just keep going on the way it was only you just wouldn’t be there. I always thought I’d like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph, and no name. Well, actually, I’d like it to say ‘figment.’

I used to think that everything was just being funny but now I don’t know. I mean, how can you tell?
Andy Warhol

The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet.
Andy Warhol

I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of ‘work’, because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don’t always want to do. The machinery is always going. Even when you sleep.
Andy Warhol

Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.
Andy Warhol

Don’t pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.
Andy Warhol

I think they should have movies in restaurants. I can’t believe that so many people get together just to sit there. It’s so abstract… isn’t it abstract? What are these people sitting here watching?
Andy Warhol
