I wanted to be an independent woman, a woman who could pay for her bills, a woman who could run her own life - and I became that woman.
There's design, and there's art. Good design is total harmony. There's no better designer than nature - if you look at a branch or a leaf, it's perfect. It's all function. Art is different. It's about emotion. It's about suffering and beauty - but mostly suffering!
The most important relationship you have in life is the one you have with yourself. And then after that, I'd say once you have that, it may be hard work, but you can actually design your life.
If you're a good person, the goodness will continue through your descendants.
I never knew what I wanted to do, but I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be.
