Quotes[edit]

  • I want everybody really lost, and I want us all to be at home there. Something like that. Actually I am not interested in that, but I mean that's what you could do. Lots of people would like it. I have to say finally what I am interested in, like Socrates: peace... rest... nothing.
    • As cited in: P. Adams Sitney Professor of Visual Arts Princeton University (2002) Visionary Film : The American Avant-Garde, 1943-2000,


  • The Angel was in the earth, and she led me to fix my eyes in Heaven. - And the remnants of the world were renewed by children and it was called Paradise.

- BB Cantos, 'Memoirs of an Angel'
