I’ve read Andy Warhol’s philosophy before but when I saw this 1976 paperback edition I had to buy it again. The cover is awesome.
You can get a lot out of the book, for instance:
When you want to be like something, it means you really love it. When you want to be like a rock, you really love that rock. I love plastic idols.
An actress friend of mine told me that after she didn’t want money any more and after she didn’t want jewels any more, that’s when she got money and jewels. I guess it’s for our own good that it always happens that way, because after you stop wanting things is when having them won’t make you go crazy. After you stop wanting them is when you can handle having them. Or before. But never during.
I hate PENNIES. I wish they’d stop making them altogether. I would never save them. I don’t have the time. I like to say in stores, ‘Oh forget it, keep those pennies. It makes my French wallet to heavy.’
