                    fiddle... anytime you don't have work to do, at least do that... fiddle around.
                      - Anne Tyng

                      You're way too dumb to figure out if your idea is good. It's up to the masses.
                      So make that very small thing and get it out there and keep on trying...

                        - Andrew Mason

                    Andreas Weininger, who used to play trumpet in the Bauhaus band, showed up at the Guggenheim to talk. He was 85 years old and it was a Saturday night. He came out and said:
                    "Hi, I'm from the nineteenth century". And we go: "Whoa". And he said: "You know, we had Saturdays in the nineteenth century too, and what we did was...".
                    And he proceeded to describe these insane long-ago evenings. It really seemed so alive and exciting. So wonderful. It was a kind of real continuity, and you really felt that, yes,
                    there have been artists, and there is a long line, and we can learn from each other, and we can go forward, and try to be as generous as possible to each other.

                      - Lauri Anderson about continuity
