I was taught to confront things you can't avoid. Death is one of those things. To live in a society where you're trying not to look at it is stupid because looking at death throws us back into life with more vigour and energy. The fact that flowers don't last for ever makes them beautiful.Damien Hirst
Das ist das Schöne an der Kunst. Jeder kann sie schaffen, wenn er nur daran glaubt. Mit Übung kann man tolle Bilder malen.
That's the great thing about art. Anybody can do it if you just believe. With practice, you can make great paintings.KunstDamien Hirst
The difference between art about death and actual death is that one's a celebration and the other's a dull fact.Damien Hirst
I think suicide is the most perfect thing you can do in life.Damien Hirst
Rauchen ist der perfekte Weg um Suizid zu begehen ohne dabei zu sterben. Ich rauche, weil es schlecht ist, so einfach ist das.
So smoking is the perfect way to commit suicide without actually dying. I smoke because it's bad, it's really simple.RauchenDamien Hirst
