Joyce Johnson

  • Everyone knew in the 1950s why a girl from a nice family left home. The meaning of her theft of herself from her parents was clear to all — as well as what she'd be up to in that room of her own.

  • I believe in the curative powers of love as the English believe in tea or Catholics believe in the Miracle of Lourdes.

  • Nothing ever happened except God.

  • Legend adheres to artists whose deaths seem the corollaries of their works.

  • If time were like a passage of music, you could keep going back to it till you got it right.

  • ... media saturation is probably very destructive to art. New movements get overexposed and exhausted before they have a chance to grow, and they turn to ashes in a short time. Some degree of time and obscurity is often very necessary to artists.
