Monet to Picasso Artist Quotes

In my last post I mentioned the Monet to Picasso exhibit. After passing security, there's a room with a big line that snakes back and forth across the room. One wall had the names of all of the sponsors on it, and another wall had quotes from various artists. There was a paper you could grab at the beginning that had them all typed out (I guess a lot of people had been writing them down).

I liked a couple of the quotes, and one I liked well enough to include in my "Favorite Quotes" section on Facebook. I thought they were worth sharing, anyway.
