Chuck Close: The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up & get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part & a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. (photo for Wisdom by Andrew Zuckerman)

Eileen Fisher: "I like simplicity. It makes the woman important. I want clothes to help us relax into ourselves."
