John Baldessari quotes

I go back and forth between wanting to be abundantly simple and maddeningly complex.

It's human desire to be understood. And we always feel we're not understood.

I could never figure out why photography and art had separate histories. So I decided to explore both.

When I went to art school, I was just having fun. I realised that was the last chance I had, and then I would have to get a job.

I guess I get bored easily, and thank God. I don't want to all my life pound only the same key, although some artists do it very effectively. I'm not trying to denigrate anybody.

That word 'funny' always makes me feel uncomfortable. Because if I were trying to be funny, I would be something like Bill Wegman - he really tries to be funny. I don't try to be funny. It's just that I feel the world is a little bit absurd and off-kilter, and I'm sort of reporting.

The success of our operas rests most of the time in the hands of the conductor. This person is as necessary as a tenor or a prima donna. Giuseppe Verdi

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. John Lennon

I just thank God that I didn't grow up with so much money or privilege because you had to create ways to make it happen. Kim Basinger today
