"I feel anyone who does anything great
in art and culture is out of control.
It is done by people who are possessed.

Anyone who is gong to practise on the piano
22 hours a day is crazy.
He or she has to be crazy
and it is an embarrassment
to deal with crazy people.

So there is a great attempt to formalize art
to contain it, to hold their bowels,
to be properly toilet trained.

Yet the whole exciting thing about art
has to do with being out of control.
It has to do with real things."
