1 - We seek to last more than we try to live.
2 - My paintings never correspond to what I had planned, but I am never surprised.
3 - Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.
4 - Art is already advertising. Mona Lisa could have been used to support a brand of chocolate, Coca-Cola, or anything else.
5 - I like to be the right thing in the wrong place and the wrong thing in the right place. Being the right thing in the wrong place and the wrong thing in the right place is worth it because something interesting always happens.
6 - You see, I think every painting should be the same size and the same color so they’re all interchangeable and nobody thinks they have a better painting or a worse painting And if the one “master painting” is good, they’re all good.
7 - Everything is more glamorous when you do it in bed, anyway. Even peeling potatoes.
8 - Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.
9 - In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.
10 - If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There's nothing behind it.
