The fact of choosing, of selecting, and deciding on one, was the result of being very careful about not using my sense of beauty or my belief in some aesthetics of some kind. In other words, finding some object of complete indifference, as far as aesthetics are concerned. And that indifference is very difficult, because there is always some detail in any object that will attract you, aesthetically. Meaning that you will find it beautiful, or even ugly. —Marcel Duchamp, talking to Martin Friedman, Walker Art Center director (1961-1990), about the readymade. 

Duchamp on designing the readymade, one of the most playful works of art we can think of.

It’s great to live by the spirit, to testify day by day for eternity, only what’s spiritual in people’s minds. But sometimes I’m fed up with my spiritual existence. Instead of forever hovering above I’d like to feel a weight grow in me to end the infinity and to tie me to earth. I’d like, at each step, each gust of wind, to be able to say “Now.” Now and now” and no longer “forever” and “for eternity.” To sit at an empty place at a card table and be greeted, even by a nod.

An officer of the Wehrmacht in Picasso’s studio during the occupation of Paris, in reference to a photo of Guernica: 

"Did you do this?"

To which Picasso: “No, you did”.
