International Herald Tribune (Paris, October 2, 1989)
"Did I say that? One says so many things, and the problem is they all get written down."John Ashbery(In response to the question "Why do you call yourself anti-art?," Bard College, 2005)
In the beginning there are those who don't quite fit in But are somehow okay. And then some morning There are places that suddenly seem wonderful: Weather and water seem wonderful, And the peaceful night sky that arrives In time to protect us, like a sword Cutting the blue cloak of a prince.John Ashbery"A Snowball in Hell"
