Thoughts on Mortality

Everyone has talent at twenty-five. The difficulty is to have it at fifty. -Edgar Degas

You're only as young as the last time you changed your mind. -Timothy Leary

Jean-Michel BasquiatDying young is the easy way out. It's much harder to keep your edge and keep it going. -Robert Longo on Jean-Michel Basquiat

It's a shock for me to go through and see all those years of painting my life, which is very personal for me. It's a very difficult thing for an artist to look back at his work. -Andrew Wyeth
