"The work should be a highly emotional experience, and if you don’t have any feelings about it, how in the world will anyone else viewing your work [feel anything] from the work?  Bikers were pretty much despised when I did the work in the mid-sixties. They did everything proper people were not supposed to do, and they looked great. I rode a 650- lb. British-made motorcycle, a Triumph, which made a lot of noise.

We invent the news. History itself is a creation. So who is going to create history? Fox News, or you?

A wise man once pointed out that “why” is not a good question. Normally, people do not really know why they do something. “What?” is better. I am more proud of what I did with my life. "
